From the Cambridgeport Neighborhood Association, March 14, 2017: 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. Its focus will be to bring residents up to speed on local issues involved in this $460 million project, which could improve dramatically the lives of Allston, Brighton and Cambridge residents.

Former mayor Henrietta Davis and Bill Deignan, the city’s representatives to the I-90 Task Force that has been meeting since 2014, will outline local issues and provide a project overview. Speakers will present the major turnpike options (elevated and at grade), Charles River and parkland issues, and other transportation issues, including about West Station, the Grand Junction and connectivity.

Representatives are expected from A Better City, the Charles River Conservancy, Walk Boston, Charles River Watershed Association, Charles River Alliance, The People’s Pike and Livable Streets. Jack Wofford, a Cambridgeport resident and former transportation official, will facilitate.

The meeting will be from 7 to 9 p.m. March 30 at the Central Square Library, 45 Pearl St. Arrive at 6:30 p.m. for refreshments, to meet presenters and neighbors, and to grab a good seat. All are welcome.
