Lower Mystic Regional Working Group Report Release @ Knights of Columbus
Mar 14 @ 10:30 am – 11:30 am
Join us for the release of the Lower Mystic Regional Working Group: Planning for Improved Transportation and Mobility in the Sullivan Square Area report.
Join MassDOT Secretary Stephanie Pollack, Boston Transportation Commissioner Gina Fiandaca, Everett Mayor Carlo DeMaria, and Somerville Mayor Joseph Curtatone to learn about the transportation recommendations for this area and the next steps to improve mobility.
The Lower Mystic Regional Working Group (LMRWG) has been studying options to improve transportation in an area encompassing parts of Boston, Everett, and Somerville and centered on the transportation hub of Sullivan Square, which has seen considerable development activity in recent years.
Although the Encore Casino in Everett is the most well-known site, other planned large-scale development proposals in the area have the potential for broad impacts on congestion in the region. The LMRWG was formed by MassDOT to study the effects these future developments may have on the entire area, identify opportunities to improve mobility, and to develop short- and long-term transportation infrastructure and policy recommendations for improving transportation in and around Sullivan Square.
The Working Group consists of the Massachusetts Department of Transportation; the cities of Boston, Everett, and Somerville; and the Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC). These five stakeholders were designated as the decision-making body for the Working Group. Additionally, other parties – including the Executive Office of Housing and Economic Development, the Massachusetts Gaming Commission, the Office of the Attorney General, Massport, the Office of Congressman Michael Capuano, and Encore Boston Harbor – have been active participants providing their input and knowledge.
