South Boston Waterfront Transportation Community Meeting Update

The South Boston Waterfront Sustainable Transportation Plan sponsors and A Better City are working on a transportation plan for the future. In the meantime, the participating agencies are making short-term improvements that respond to many of the issues raised at the May 7 Community Meeting. Participants submitted nearly 300 comments and suggestions on issues ranging from transit improvements to pedestrian and bicycle issues to water transportation. 
  
A map on the project website graphically depicts the agency and short to mid-term improvements that are underway. You can see the projects and improvements that the City of Boston; Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) and the MBTA; Massport; the Seaport TMA; and the Massachusetts Convention Center Authority have underway.
  
Completed improvements include traffic signal re-timing and the arrival of three time-to-destination boards for area landmarks to help plan your travel. This fall, real-time arrival and departure countdown signage will be installed in Silver Line Stations.
  
You can provide comments, reactions and suggestions on the website. Feel free to forward this information to friends or neighbors and encourage them to sign up for future updates about the project. 
  
Over the next few months, the team will begin to identify and test strategies to address additional transportation challenges and solutions. In the fall, you will be invited to participate in meetings to continue this discussion. Future meetings will present the preliminary and final recommendations. 
  
We look forward to working with you,
