Upcoming Neighborhood Meetings

Rt. 1A Corridor Study Public Meeting on October 3 Postponed

 The Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) announced the postponement of the Route 1A Corridor Study public meeting on Monday, October 3, and the working group meeting that was scheduled on Wednesday, September 28.  These meetings will be rescheduled for other dates this fall.

 The Route 1A Corridor Study seeks to assess the potential uses of the MassDOT and MBTA rail parcels located between Route 1A and the Chelsea Creek and evaluate the Route 1A corridor between Bell Circle in Revere and Day Square in East Boston. The study will identify opportunities to improve connections for people walking, bicycling and taking transit, and address safety issues and potential impacts of climate change.

 For more details about the Route 1A Corridor Study, please visit the project website.  MassDOT will continue to provide updates on the study at future public engagement sessions. Anyone with questions may reach out to the project team at [email protected].
