Without your support, funding for the underpass will be much harder to obtain - so don’t wait!

Subject: CIP Comments - Include funding for Anderson Bridge underpass
Thank you for the opportunity to comment on MassDOT’s five-year Capital Investment Plan. I am writing to urge you to include funding for the construction of a pedestrian/bicycle underpass at the Boston side of the Anderson Memorial Bridge in the Capital Investment Plan.
This underpass, which is currently being designed by Gill Engineering for MassDOT, is a long-overdue addition to the Soldier’s Field Road / North Harvard Street intersection. Once constructed, an underpass will complement the planned at-grade intersection improvements to increase safety for pedestrians, bicycles, and vehicles alike, as well as provide a contiguous 3.5-mile riverside corridor for runners and cyclists, promoting MassDOT’s mode shift and greenhouse gas reduction goals.
Again, I urge you to include funding for the construction of a pedestrian/bicycle underpass at the Boston side of the Anderson Bridge, a vital addition to MassDOT’s infrastructure, in the five-year Capital Investment Plan. Thank you again for the opportunity to comment.
