Not even fences up as promised in the most recent article. Literally no change except the weeds growing taller
Dave -- I think you missed the point which was directly under your noseWhat happens when we prioritize highways over people...this is just one of the many scars left over from the failed innerbelt, a very persistent scar at that.
It was cancelled, and my comment was not inveighing against the highway not being built but the destruction that happened due to the planning of the highway itself. The fact is, much of Roxbury was destroyed regardless if the highway was finally built or not. That is a scar. I highly doubt any of the residents that live in this area think this should be another Kendall Square...and the P3 plan does not suggest anything close to something along those lines.Dave -- I think you missed the point which was directly under your nose
The Innerbelt didn't fail -- it was cancelled affirmatively
Indeed it's cancellation was the very thing that you seem to be inveighing against -- Gov. Sargent prioritized people over highways -- for the first time or thereabouts in US history -- they didn't build the innerbelt and now there is an opportunity to finish the job that Gov Sargent started 40 or so years ago
This site is essentially another Kendall Sq. after the NASA Electronics Center was cancelled -- it has also taken about 40 years to come to fruition -- with MIT starting to redevelop the Volpe site
