Southie & South End cyclists, we need your help in speaking up for improved cycling infrastructure at the MassDOT owned property at the base of the Broadway & West 4th Street Bridges. As you know, there are precious few ways in & out of South Boston, and since this area is going under construction soon we will have to live with whatever gets constructed there for a long loooooooong time.
Attend the public meeting and speak up for safer cycling!
Monday February 24th, at 6:00pm
Project Place – 1145 Washington St, South End, Boston MA (above Myers & Chang restaurant)
Check out our Facebook Event where you can easily invite your cyclist friends to attend.
MassDOT is building a 400+ car parking lot called the “Mobility Hub” which will improve the desolate, crime ridden area known as The Stacks below the elevated highway. The parking lot will offer a measure of improvement over the current eyesore because it will add much needed lighting and help activate the space which should reduce the rampant crime in that area. What we need to do is make sure this ‘hub of mobility’ doesn’t become a place for cars only. We have a copy of the current schematic plan, and there is a lot left to be desired for cycling improvements.
Anyone who wants to hang out and talk bikes afterward is welcome to enjoy post meeting dumplings at Myers & Chang!
See you at the meeting!
