Melnea Cass Boulevard Design Project

The Transportation Department is working with the Roxbury community to redesign Melnea Cass Boulevard. Our goal is to make it a neighborhood friendly corridor. 

The scope includes the development of a Complete Streets roadway and streetscape design that:

  • creates a pedestrian friendly environment
  • ensures efficient traffic flow
  • accommodates transit vehicles and bicycles, and
  • promotes economic development.

About the project

We're building on the conclusions of the Roxbury Strategic Master Plan.

We'll work on the design local communities and all relevant City and state agencies, neighborhood groups, and corridor abutters.  As part of this project, we plan to coordinate with the designs for the South Bay Harbor Trail and neighboring development parcels.

By the numbers

The initial City of Boston investment of $2.2 million for design is being supported by federal earmark and state matching funds for construction, totaling about $25 million. The schedule for completion of 25 percent of the design plans is estimated to be spring 2017.
