Transportation Planning for Allston Landing Interchange
5:00 pm - 7:00 pm (EST)
- Harvard Innovation Lab
- 125 Western Avenue
Join fellow alumni at Harvard’s Innovation Lab to hear from Joseph Beggan, Senior Manager for Transportation, Harvard Planning Office on the changes occurring in Allston and Harvard’s role in the area. The 1-90 Allston Interchange Improvement Project is a unique opportunity to knit together pieces of Boston separated by the construction of rail infrastructure in the 19th century and the Massachusetts Turnpike extension over a half-century ago. This project, with all of its associated benefits, would not be possible without collaborations and investments by both MassDOT and Harvard University in the years preceding it, particularly Harvard’s agreement with CSX Transportation, Inc. to vacate both Allston Landing North and South, which opened the possibility for development of those areas and the proposed MassDOT interchange project. When is too early or too late to make serious transportation plans? How is this all being paid for? What is Harvard’s role short-term and long-term? Following the presentation, guests are encouraged to attend Aeuronaut Allston, a summertime beer garden hosted at Zone 3, 267 Western Avenue.
