A citywide public information meeting about the realignment of Interstate 90 across the river in Allston – a project slated to begin in 2019 – is planned for March 30 by the Cambridgeport Neighborhood Association.
A Tuesday storm dumped an estimated 6.2 inches of snow on the city, temporarily cutting off power to more than a thousand residents as high winds took down tree branches and power lines, public works and utility officials reported.
With the region expecting likely snowfall of 12 to 18 inches, but potentially as much as 20 inches, officials has announced that city offices, libraries and schools would close Tuesday.
A free public meeting of the Cambridge Residents Alliance taking place March 12 will include state Rep. Denise Provost, reporting on the status of the construction of the MBTA green line extension, and other guests with information on the project.
Public input will be taken at the meeting, and there will be a presentation and discussion of the draft recommendations of the task force, which has met eight times over the past 22 months.
Here we go again: Sunday’s winter storm is bringing with it a snow emergency parking ban meant to keep roads empty for snowplows, though officials said city offices, schools, libraries and human service programs were expected to be open regular hours Monday.
With up to a foot of snow predicted for Thursday, the city has called a snow emergency – closing services and putting a parking ban into effect as of 7 a.m. to facilitate plowing.
More than a dozen residents and bike advocates called for speedy safety improvements to transportation infrastructure Monday, and six city councillors had their own calls for urgency, starting with Craig Kelley’s gentle prompt: “Things still seem to be moving slowly.”
Neighborhood concerns about traffic patterns, noise abatement and access surrounding 2019 reconstruction the Massachusetts Turnpike will be addressed at a Jan. 19 meeting
