On behalf of our membership we hereby reiterate our support for MassDOT’s Casey Arborway Project in Jamaica Plain.

Planned over many years by scores of professional engineers and architects in cooperation with dozens of organizations and thousands of engaged citizens, the Casey Arborway Project represents a once-in-a-generation opportunity to enhance commuting infrastructure for cars, buses, trains, cyclists and pedestrians in a transit hub vital to the economic life of Boston and the region.

The project will also improve recreational and commuting connections within the Emerald Necklace, an historic park system that benefits the entire region.
