One of the ostensible reasons to ask for the dam crossing is to create recreational loops in the lower basin, such as:
Our mission includes keeping the larger basin wide issues in mind such as future Crossings at Routes 28, 99 and 16, fish migration, flood control, recreational boating and many others.
I love it, but it sounds like focus creep. But it touches on subjects near and dear to my heart, so I'll comment.
Earhart Dam->Gateway Park->Over Route 16->Through Wellington MBTA parking Lot->Under Orange Line->Over Route 28 bridge->Back through Assembly Square to the dam.
So keeping an eye toward the bigger picture is something I see as valuable, as long as we set firm expectations. I'd like to see us agree on a reasonable scope for the crossing, including a budget. Any plan that is more than a certain cost or time, we ought to reject. I'd set the thresholds at 1 year and $200,000.
