Dear Secretary Davey,

We would like to thank you for your commitment to a public process for the I-90 Allston Interchange Project. The taskforce you have created will ensure that community input is considered from the outset of design.

The first public informational meeting on April 10th was very constructive. Many residents, business owners and advocates were in attendance to share their concerns. It is important that every effort is made to maintain efficient traffic flows through Allston, Brighton and surrounding communities during construction.

We are writing to encourage you to think broadly about the focus of this project. Many of the early discussions have concentrated exclusively on transportation connections between the Turnpike and Cambridge Street. We believe that there is an opportunity to address many regional needs and make the project benefits broadly felt. We write to urge you to lead a process with a broad scope so as to allow consideration of the wide range of connection possibilities in the interchange redesign.

We appreciate your consideration of this proposal.
