    Building a hospital at crown colony would be a transportation nightmare. Sure highway “access” is good in terms of proximity but the 93 off ramp is always choked. As is the CC/Centre Street split at peak times. Crown colony also has 0 transit accessibility, not so much as an infrequent bus

    Ah dang, I missed that. Shame but makes sense. Not the worst area to live car free (did it for a couple years before I had a kid) but not the best either. BJs is the only place to shop within walking distance, and centre street is pretty shitty to bike on

    Live in this neighborhood, this is great! The monti granite property across the street is getting redeveloped as well. I really wish they would formally connect intervale with the crown colony business park

    New England independence

    No disagreement with your overall point, would definitely be a disaster. Don’t understand why you think concentrating more government spending locally would soak up money from the economy rather than be stimulating though? Again I dont disagree that it wouldn’t make up for the likely population...

    New England independence

    Not sure if this is what inspired the thread but certainly a funny coincidence. The New United States of New England As Woodard says in the article, a breakup of the US would be disastrous for a litany of reasons. In such an event though I think a broader northeastern union is more likely, why...

    My understanding is they will serve both. A north bound shuttle will come up Columbus, turn left onto Dartmouth and stop at back bay, continue up Dartmouth and stop again in front of the BPL, then loop around Boylston/Clarendon to catch southbound Back Bay riders at the bus loop before...

    So I asked about this today and was told that because there is no easy street route to through-run the OL shuttles it’s actually faster as a 3 seat ride going shuttle-green-shuttle than it would have been as a one seat shuttle ride.

    As I’m reading it the money isn’t for a study it’s put towards the actual work

    to me this reeks of wanting to look like you are Doing Something while passing all the actual work and responsibility onto someone else. Keep the narrative on institutional incompetence rather than the state’s neglect
