Will Kosciuszko Circle aka the Rotary from Hell get a much needed upgrade? Looks like there’s a plan in the works evaluate and recommend transportation and infrastructure improvements intended to improve mobility for pedestrians, transit users, cyclists, and motorists, and strengthen climate resiliency. The corridor study will launch later this summer and take between 12-18 months. This study is important and neccessary- especially with all the new developments coming to that area including the old Bayside Expo which will be transformed into a ginormous development – Dorchester Bay City.
Kosciuszko Circle/William T. Morrissey Boulevard Corridor Study via BPDA newsletter:
MassDOT, the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs (EEA), the Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR), the City of Boston, and the BPDA have agreed to undertake a joint planning study to evaluate the existing and future transportation conditions at Kosciuszko Circle and along William T. Morrissey Boulevard. The Study will develop and analyze alternatives for the corridor that are intended to improve the public realm, mobility, connectivity, safety, and climate resiliency throughout the area. The Study area will extend from Preble Street on the north to Neponset Circle on the south. It will formally launch later this summer, take 12 to 18 months to complete, and involve significant community and stakeholder engagement.
Here’s a little history lesson on the man who this circle from hell is named after!
