MassDOT is conducting the Arsenal Street Corridor Study in Watertown. This study will develop and analyze alternatives that are intended to improve transportation conditions on Arsenal Street between Galen Street and Birmingham Parkway. The study will propose improvements to vehicular, transit, bicycle, and pedestrian uses of the corridor, with a targeted focus on enhancements to bus service along Arsenal Street and locations where the bus service ties into other crossing bus routes.

The Draft Final Report is now available. At this final public information meeting, the project team will present the draft study recommendations, preliminary construction cost estimates, and action items for implementation included in the report. The public is encouraged to stop by the Open House to learn about the report, speak with the project team, and provide feedback. Comments on the report will be accepted through July 5, 2017.

  1. I am too late to make comments to Mass DOT but I have biked through the area many times. I used to work near Chestnut Hill Ave and the Birmingham Pkwy.

    I would hope that any type of trolley (overhead or ground) uses the Rte 20 intersection with Soldiers Field Road and the heavy rail for the Boston-Worcester line. These connections would provide a real boost to the Allston-Brighton neighborhood.
