We believe that as proposed, these plans do little to increase access to all users; moreover, the decision to start this work at James Street even as the I-195 Commission has issued specific developer criteria for that stretch of road and riverfront is unfortunate in the extreme. It demonstrates yet again a failure to implement both the city’s and the state’s goals for complete streets and integrated transportation into the actual operations of their agencies.
Thanks for posting this! Anyone interested in doing community outreach around this issue ahead of the March 12th bike & ped meeting should contact me. (my blog’s name at gmail).
