Connect Downtown: Southwest Corridor Extension

We want to connect the Southwest Corridor to Downtown, Beacon Hill, and the West End. We plan to improve pedestrian crossings and add on-street bike facilities.

Connect Downtown creates a network of comfortable, on-street walking and bicycling routes. Our goal is to connect the existing Southwest Corridor Park to key locations in Downtown, Beacon Hill, and beyond. Through this project, we will:

  • Improve pedestrian crossings along the route
  • Provide comfortable, reasonably direct routes for bicyclists, and
  • Enhance pedestrian access to the Public Garden and Common.

The project will connect to jobs, education, retail, and other major destinations. We plan to design the project in a way that allows for faster construction.
