Looks like it was some kind of urban renewal highway. Those were all slaughter houses on that strech.

Knock yourself out :)


I'm not aware of a way to get vector graphics out of a screen snip.
I was referring to the PDF report, with all the unreadably pixellated maps. Like...I know there's a shitload of information being lovingly presented there for consumption, but the map annos are so blurred-out throughout the 270-something pages that they almost look redacted.

I didn't realize the DCR has an ongoing design effort to redesign the Jamaicaway. Its been in the works for years. In the Jamaica Plain news this week some folks post a letter requesting the Jamaicaway and Arborway to remain as parkways. I prefer Alternate 2 that deletes Kelly Circle but retains the rotary at Centre Street as part of the parkway and separates the southbound carriageway completely from through traffic. I assume that neighborhood folks would consider all intersections with traffic control an improvement for pedestrians. Here is the link to the 4 alternatives in design as DCR. parkway-4-schematic-designs

To be clear this is not a Jamaicaway project it's the Arborway and the preferred alternative has already been selected as this one: https://www.mass.gov/doc/proposed-a...ative-for-83122-stakeholders-meeting/download

There has been two years of public comment already https://www.mass.gov/service-details/arborway-parkways-improvement-project
