This is an extensive article published in the Feb. 19th Washington Post, and describes specific actions being taken by the city, MBTA, and individual developers to anticipate rising sea levels and pro-actively undertake steps to mitigate the potential damage and disruption.


This being the Washington Post, there are 700+ comments as of 6: 30 PM today.

Mods, feel free to move to another forum. I posted it here because of numerous references, with photos, to individual projects in this sub-forum.

A photo from the article.


In a low-lying shoreline area of East Boston, developers are building at higher levels to account for the rising sea. (No photo credit, though it looks similar to a Beeline photo!)

It's now up to 919 comments. It's almost one Whighlander post (with the exception of being relevant).
