    Biking in Boston

    Happy to see it. Also, I thought we had learned our lesson from Vassar St that there needs to be some buffer between the cycle track and the walking are to reduce conflicts.

    MBTA Fare System (Charlie, AFC 2.0, Zone, Discounts)

    I've been seeing the new readers on my bus lately (62). So far the most I've seen is 2 near the front door. One right next to the existing fare box (on your right as you board) and one mounted to the pole as you get to the first seat (on the left as you pass). Haven't seen one at a rear door...

    Cambridge Infill and Small Developments

    Central Square City Lots Study I had missed this until recently but the city is looking at development opportunities on some city-owned parcels around Central Square. There was an online community meeting last night...

    Cambria Hotel | 515 Somerville Ave | Union Sq | Somerville

    Before they put up that fencing to work on the restaurant the night time lighting made it look quite inviting when I was over there in December.

    I-90 Interchange Improvement Project & West Station | Allston

    I believe so, here is a map I put together from MassDOT documents of the Pike Parcels. I am sure there are errors but it matches up generally with the BU master plan map.

    17 Farnsworth | Seaport

    My only thought is that is should be a floor taller but the straight on view where I feel that way won't really be seen from the ground (narrow street) so, OK. Agree, better than a parking garage.

    Middlesex County Courthouse Redevelopment | 40 Thorndike St | East Cambridge

    The asbestos mitigation seems to be the biggest piece of this. Also not currently occupied?

    Bowker Overpass replacement?

    I like it a lot! I would even go farther and propose an at grade T intersection with Storrow at grade with crosswalks etc.

    800 Morrissey Blvd | Dorchester

    Plus one for the street wall and and infill Red Line station! I was looking around google maps after reading through this post this morning and the Red Line was my first thought. I know there have been ideas floated to move the Ashmont/Braintree Red Line split until after Savin Hill as part of...

    That parking structure on the first proposal is "the worst"

    Green Line Extension to Medford & Union Sq

    I thought that they needed to be 225' to fit two Type 10s. (obviously there are no Type 10s in existence yet, so TBD). Pages 41 to 45 in this doc (from 2018) says that the platform length needed is 225 feet for 2 of the proposed Type 10s and then lists the platforms that don't meet this (a few...

    New Red and Orange Line Cars

    Agreed! A bus conversion would be the worst outcome. Second, I suppose, to a rail to trail conversion with local bus substitution.

    New Red and Orange Line Cars

    Aren't we all hoping that the AMHSL gets converted into a full Red Line extension anyway? That would mean this is only temporary (I know, famous last words).

    🔹 What's Happening With Project X?

    I haven't seen anything super comprehensive that was easy to play with in google maps, so I dug through this old gem and made a google map with some layers that show the approximate locations and extents of the parcels. My apologies if there is a version of this out there already. * Disclaimer...
