Would it be feasible to eminent domain BU's access road's running alongside the highway next to their dorms? Looks like there is some footage there and you could push the Pike right up against the buildings.

Looking quickly, it's an access road for the Agganis Arena loading dock, and most likely doubles as a fire access road along those buildings. There's quite a difference in the terrain in parts so it's debatable if you can replace those services without impeding on the land you'd be taking..

The retaining wall varies from close to 10 ft. high where Agganis Way wraps around to 3 ft. high where Buick St. wraps around...and the backsides of the buildings contour to the change in grade. Whole thing is striped "No Parking - Fire Lane", so...correct, no one's messing with that.
