Stand with ArborwayMatters


#ArborwayMatters The street level, at-grade Casey Arborway plan is the result of open, public, and spirited discussions by community members and professionals who weighed the merits of countless alternatives, including multiple overpass designs

#ArborwayMatters The surface road alternative was selected by the state in March 2012. For more than eighteen months, many community members have worked together to make the final plans better for all

#ArborwayMatters The plans include miles of bike paths, hundreds of trees and flowering shrubs, acres of additional greenspace, more blue sky and acres less hardscape

#ArborwayMatters Bridge ramps, piers and abutments waste valuable ground that will be used to simplify vehicle, pedestrian and cycle paths and create safer open spaces

#ArborwayMatters Peer-reviewed traffic studies show no appreciable delays in vehicle transit times with an at-grade parkway

#ArborwayMatters Air quality analysis shows no appreciable difference for any of the considered options - no increase in vehicle miles or hours traveled means no degradation of air quality

#ArborwayMatters A new Head House adjacent to Southwest Corridor Park will provide direct access to the MBTA station without crossing traffic

#ArborwayMatters A new public plaza at the end of Southwest Corridor Park provides community space perfect for Farmer’s Markets, Art Fairs, and neighborhood festivals

#ArborwayMatters Boston’s Emerald Necklace deserves a world-class connection between Arnold Arboretum and Franklin Park
