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 to identify assets and opportunities for change on Lower Roxbury's streets.

What we've done so far

We're co-creating a process with the community. In August and September, we held a series of "Ideas on the Street" popups at locations around Lower Roxbury. We're now hosting a series of open houses to share what we've heard. Please attend these events, share your thoughts with us, and help us decide what comes next.
