Lower Roxbury Transportation Study

We want to hear your ideas about how to make it safer and more enjoyable to travel around Lower Roxbury.

Lower Roxbury residents and stakeholders asked us to take a broad look at transportation in the neighborhood. Over the coming months, we will work with members of the community. We want to find ways we can highlight assets and opportunities for change on Lower Roxbury's streets.
