A history of the redesign project

It is sadly too easy to forget, more than ten years later, that the project of redesigning Mass. Ave. was originally spurred by two pedestrian fatalities in East Arlington in 1996.

Buried on the Town’s Mass. Ave. Corridor web site is this concise history of the project, compiled by the Town’s Transportation Advisory Committee.*

I have added this resource to the links page.

*This committee is different from the Mass. Ave. Redesign Committee that has been overseeing the Mass. Ave. Project.
