Welcome to South Boston Waterfront Sustainable Transportation Plan. This site is intended to share information on the Plan and to gather feedback from the community to help shape access and mobility solutions for the future.
About the Plan
Infrastructure planning and investment set in motion more than three decades ago have spurred a steady pace of private sector investment and redevelopment in the Waterfront. Faster than expected growth in this area has increased tourism and commercial traffic as well as resident population and led to congestion and mobility challenges; approved and planned development is likely to increase these pressures. These increases in transportation demands and congestion can have a spillover effect on the adjoining South Boston neighborhood and on adjacent roads in the Financial District. Furthermore, transit access to the South Boston Waterfront is approaching its capacity.
The VISION for the South Boston Waterfront is to realize its full transformation to a distinct and vibrant neighborhood within the City of Boston that:
- Supports a broad cross-section of the region's economic drivers.
- Provides residential space and quality of life for a diversity of Boston's residents.
- Is a world-renowned, memorable, and accessible destination for tourists, conventioneers, and other visitors, alike.
There is broad consensus that a Sustainable Transportation Plan -- that supports the 21st Century South Boston Waterfront area, defines and prioritizes transportation system investments, influences people's travel behaviors, and improves the public realm -- is needed to unleash the full potential of this area and achieve the vision. This Plan seeks to:
- Improve Access and Mobility for All
- Support Economic Growth and Vitality
- Enhance the Public Realm
- Contribute Environmental and Health Benefits
- Invest Smartly for the Future
Just as it was in prior planning efforts, community participation is critical in developing a vision for the future. This site is set up to collect your feedback, share project documents, and keep you up to date on community meetings.
