Re: Summary of meeting with DCR Commissioner/Planner Dan Driscoll
- Note: The MBTA has proposed a substitue project... a path directly
from Draw 7 to Sullivan Square, along the east side of the railroad
tracks and through the junkyard.
This route has one advantage -- it is more direct for MBTA bound
commuters. I worry about personal safety here, and about the
practicaily of crossing the roadway. It is a very isolated spot.
The river's edge path is visible to boaters (potentially) and all the
traffic on route 99.
> The logic here continues to elude me. The present situation requirescyclists and others to take a route that has numerous potential
hazards, and the width of the proposed Path is zero, i.e. it doesn't
yet exist. It seems to me that even a less-than-optimal width would be
a vast improvement over the current situation. What is the proposed
width, by the way, and what width is considered optimal?
