Wellington bike-pedestrian improvements part of proposed study
- The Boston Region Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) is circulating an important transportation-planning document for public review and comment: the draft Federal Fiscal Year 2012 Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP), which shows the federally funded transportation-planning activities for the region that are proposed for programming and to take place during that year.
The list of new projects in the UPWP includes a $40,000 study of the Wellington Circle area by the Central Transportation Planning Staff.
This study would consider conceptual short and long term improvements that would address congestion and traffic safety problems at Wellington Circle. In addition, pedestrian and bicycle facilities would be envisioned to improve non-automobile connectivity at this location.
Public comments on the draft FFY 2012 UPWP will be accepted until 5 p.m. on Tuesday, August 9, 2011. Written comments should be addressed to:
Chair, MPO Transportation Planning and Programming Committee
10 Park Plaza, Suite 2150
A meeting to take action on the draft is currently scheduled for August 18, 2011, time TBA. It will be held in a conference room of the State Transportation Building, 10 Park Plaza, Boston. Members of the public are invited to attend.
