    Marine Industrial Park | Seaport

    Yeah, very good information there. I did have to chuckle at the statement: Their plan would also facilitate the linking of MMT Parcels 7 and 8 to Parcel M through an internal truck circulation route to decrease traffic on FID Kennedy Avenue and Dolphin Way. Umm . . . what traffic? It's a...

    Marine Industrial Park | Seaport

    It might simply be a "temporary" place holder for the property to generate some income on a piece of real estate that has great potential but hasn't been able to find a proper suitor. Massport gets some return from the place, gets a major pier rebuilt for free and retains the area for future...

    Marine Industrial Park | Seaport

    I don't know about this. First of all: "In addition to its existing bulk-stuff operations, Eastern would also look at repairing the North Jetty dock that would be capable of handling "Panamax" ships - which are the largest ships that can travel through the Panama Canal" That's fine except...

    Fenway HoJo's Redevelopment | 1271 Boylston Street | Fenway

    And you forgot to mention that it's WATERFRONT PROPERTY too! A waterfront trailer park in Boston . . . hard to believe right? I love the Airstream idea. Really cool especially where this is located. This property is worth a fortune and we all know this hotel will not last forever. P.S. Is...

    I-90 Interchange Improvement Project & West Station | Allston

    Good thing Menino is long gone or the Readville expansion might just be a bit of a battle. Also with the many proposals like the recent AmeriStarRail (https://ameristarrail.com) plan that envision through service on the Grand Junction, I think West Station could be a sensible alternative to...

    I-90 Interchange Improvement Project & West Station | Allston

    To do this right they need to take only four feet from the river. The river is very wide at this point. I think it has to be the answer since that will allow the best solution.

    General MBTA Topics (Multi Modal, Budget, MassDOT)

    Well we have nothing now. It's better than nothing and will ensure that the ROW stays available. Also . . . watch it, my wife's from Lynn :)

    General MBTA Topics (Multi Modal, Budget, MassDOT)

    There was always the idea to extend the Orange Line to Route 128 via Roslindale and that was planned into the Forest Hills station design. However, the 32 bus (Forest Hills to Hyde Park/Wolcott Square via Hyde Park Ave) is seriously overcrowded and extending the line that way would bring huge...

    Green Line Extension to Medford & Union Sq

    I never heard that the Indigo Line was scrapped. And please remember that there was a great plan to build a BRT (Bus Rapid Transit) line down the center of Blue Hill Avenue to Mattapan and the neighborhoods simply did not want it!

    Marine Industrial Park | Seaport

    It's been almost 20 years (2003) since Massport posted this drawing of the planned new rail line into the MMT. Is this really going to finally happen?

    Rt 128 Interchanges

    I suppose you could make it a giant four way stop to get that number to 0 but how efficient would the traffic flow be? I used to drive through there everyday and found it very aggravating. The cloverleaf worked fine.

    This is what they did for those interested:

    Rt 128 Interchanges

    Drivers are now forced to take left turns from two left lanes across opposing traffic on Route 9 which is a posted 45 mph roadway through this area. There is the potential for such serious accidents that were physically impossible with a cloverleaf design. Maybe no one will speed over 45 mph...

    Rt 128 Interchanges

    And added confusion, collision points and potential head-on collisions that weren't even possible before. Had you tried to get out of Wellesley Office Park at rush hour? The thing is a giant Cluster F.

    Rt 128 Interchanges

    God, after the mess they made out of the Route 9/128 interchange maybe we are better off leaving things alone. Here they took a mostly well-functioning basic cloverleaf and made it into a weird level crossing configuration with left turns and traffic lights. Who the hell thought that that...

    Green Line Extension to Medford & Union Sq

    For anyone interested: Railway Track & Structures Editor-in-Chief Bill Wilson talks with Green Line Extension Project Manager John Dalton on construction progress and some challenges...

    Regional New England Rail (Amtrak & State DOT)

    Really want to see them running with a Viewliner to see how the profiles line up! Baggage would be fine.

    Graffiti Images, Art, or Nuisance

    This was much worse:

    Green Line Extension to Medford & Union Sq

    I got a feeling in this case that they just went from one cross street to the next without many options.

    Graffiti Images, Art, or Nuisance

    What right has anyone to put their "art" anyplace they want including places where it definitely isn't wanted?
