The Governor called me on Thursday with they welcome news that he has decided to allocate federal stimulus funding to expedite the construction of the Alewife Greenway — a great improvement in the bikepath that runs from Alewife Station to the Mystic River.
Bids were opened yesterday (October 14) for the bikepath that will run from Brighton Street in Belmont through Alewife station to Somerville.
As part of Governor Deval Patrick’s reform plan to make transportation agencies more accountable to commuters, the Registry of Motor Vehicles is reinstating courtesy notices for driver’s license and MA ID renewals that were discontinued last December.
For over 5 years, the Town of Belmont has been designing the reconstruction of Belmont Street and Trapelo Road — the busiest traffic corridor in town.
State-federal funding for the actual construction may still be five years away, but the good news is that the state has finally placed the project in its long term funding plans.
I’ve been biking down the Brighton St. – Alewife – Davis Sq. trail almost daily, and I’ve made a few observations I’d like to share.
The story which came out today in the Boston Globe is a block buster. I will actively oppose a T fare increase.
