As we continue to take precautions around public gatherings, we are working on ways to engage with you electronically. We will update you via email when we have more information. You can also check the Tremont Street Design Project webpage and @BostonBTD on Twitter for updates.

Previous Update, 3/11 12:30pm – the March 11th Open House for Connect Downtown has been postponed due to COVID-19 precautions. No decision has been made about Saturday’s Open House or the Tremont Street meetings.

There are upcoming Boston Transportation Department open house meetings scheduled for the Connect Downtown Project and the Tremont Street Design Project.We encourage you to attend and weigh in positively about the important changes that will make downtown safer for people walking!

An open house meeting is designed to make it easier for you to stop by for a short time to look at project boards, ask questions, and give feedback. Sign up for updates for either project on the project page.

Connect Downtown

PROJECT VISION: Walking will be pleasant and easy. Safe, separated bikeways will serve and connect residents, employers, and local businesses. Families will explore Boston’s neighborhoods and iconic parks together, from the Esplanade to the Boston Common to the Southwest Corridor.

Through this project, BTD will:

  • Improve pedestrian crossings along the route
  • Provide comfortable, reasonably direct routes for bicyclists, and
  • Enhance pedestrian access to the Public Garden and Common.

Tremont Street Design Project (South End) 

Boston Transportation Department is designing changes to make Tremont Street safer for everyone with an emphasis on pedestrian safety at intersections. Tremont Street is in the top 3 percent for pedestrian crashes on City-owned streets. In recent years, two people lost their lives while attempting to cross Tremont Street at one of the many four-lane crosswalks. Data show that 53 crashes resulted in an EMS response in the last 3 years. This includes 19 that involved people walking. BTD is currently focused on Tremont Street between Massachusetts Avenue and Herald Street.
