MA State Meeting Tonight: Mass. Pike (I90) Off Ramp to Cambridge over the Charles River.
Tonight, April 10, 2014, at 6:30 pm, Massachusetts transportation planners will present plans for the rearrangement of the Massachusetts Turnpike (I90) in the area where Harvard is maneuvering to move its Medical School and other facilities.
The meeting will be conducted in Union Square in the Allston neighborhood of Boston, in the Jackson-Mann School.
Irresponsible bicycle activists are being called out to work as the stalking horse.
It is impossible to tell at this point the level to which the planning is above board, except that it is very clear the destructive bicycle activists will be shafted.
Governor Patrick’s $24 million in House Bill H3332 to destroy hundreds of trees between the BU Bridge and the Longfellow Bridge is part of the package. The destruction of these trees makes Memorial Drive converted to highway standards to accept the new off ramp’s traffic.
Prior reports on this issue include two detailed reports with photos on how the off ramp will be built, including the responsible alternate route to which the irresponsible bicycle activists will be moved:

My most recent report goes into very abbreviated analysis on large scale corrupt practices by Cambridge and its Cambridge Machine on development issues. This report includes blatant, easily provable, lies over a a twenty year period by Cambridge planners.

And to the level anybody tells you differently, please remember the 45 year Cambridge Rent Control activist who is now fighting against Rent Control and does not want to know reality: http://charlesriverwhitegeeseblog.blogspot.com/2014/03/case-study-near-50-year-rent-control.html.
