|We Need You Next Thursday!
April 10 is the first public meeting
on the Mass Pike Realignment -- a $260 million project to straighten the Pike in Allston. This will be a great project for drivers going THROUGH Allston. We need your help to make sure it's a great project for those of us living IN Allston.
With your help, we got major improvements to the Cambridge Street Overpass. Now we have a chance to do it again, on a MUCH larger scale.
Together, let's make this more than just a highway project. Let's create a "People's Pike" -- new parkland along the river, safe and welcoming new cycletracks, walking/jogging/biking connections to knit Allston back together, and to connect Allston to the Charles River, Cambridge, and beyond.
Please join us on April 10 and spread the word to help us make a strong statement to MassDOT at this important meeting.
