Route 57 Transit Priority Corridor Open House

Learn about the updates we've made to our design since last August, and give feedback and input on commercial loading and access needs.

February 15, 2024
2024-02-15T18:00:00 - 2024-02-15T19:30:00

The Route 57 Transit Priority Corridor Project Team has updated designs and information to share about the project, which will change the way the street works on Tremont, Washington, and Cambridge Streets in Allston and Brighton. This includes removing parking to add bus lanes, adding space at streetcorners to improve visibility, and reducing pedestrian crossing distances to improve safety. We've taken feedback from the community at our last meeting, and incorporated it into our design.

Dinner will be provided.

For more information about disability access or language interpretation, please contact transit@boston.gov and LCA@boston.gov.
