A whole bunch of state, regional, and local agencies are releasing their vision for the future of Sullivan Square area transportation. The group convened after the Wynn casino approval in ‘14.

There are a lot of takeaways but the biggest ones are to extend the Silver Line from Chelsea thru Everett to Sullivan, and then possibly on to Kendall Square and North Station.

The fabled footbridge between Everett and Somerville is also a big’un here. Wynn is paying for design of that at present.

Are there graphics (or links to ones) that illustrate any of this?

can they do something about bus access from Broadway? 2/3 of the passengers on the 89/101 get off at Mt Vernon and walk the last 3 blocks rather than wait for the bus to crawl to the station entrance

Local bus improvements, policies to vastly reduce parking requirements in the area also on deck. Also: plan to get Orange Line to three-min. headways. (Currently it’s six when service functions well; new cars and signals expected to bring to 4.5.)

The working group said maybe some day they’ll advance a study of new on-ramp to 93 and an Orange Line spur through Everett. But those aren’t coming any time soon.

Let me guess. Not a one of them has to sit in the now 20 minutes it takes you to get from the traffic circle in Everett to Sullivan Square? Imagine when that shithole opens?

It probably bears mentioning that this is separate from (albeit related to) Boston’s plans to rebuild Rutherford Ave and turn Sullivan into a street grid.

Is this a use of the Grand Junction RoW?

At least through Everett next to CR, they were saying, then probably dedicated lanes from there. That’s how I understood it.

Seems a little late, given that the City of Boston announced its own plan a couple years ago and now Wynn is paying for a bunch of changes there. Maybe MA needs to start deciding what they want to do and then spend the money.

2014. And now most times Sullivan Sw backs up traffic at least .5 mi in every direction every morning and afternoon. Current redesign is a travesty. Between that the North Washington bridge construction, good luck getting in or out of Charlestown.

My prediction is the redo of Rutherford is going to be a horrible waste of money. I saw the plans. Hope I am wrong...not holding my breath.

This is from the early 2014 Disposition Study of Sullivan and the 1st mention of turning Sullivan into a neighborhood/business district. Living literally a block away and using Sullivan daily on foot it'll be a disaster! Designed by someone who doesn't use Sullivan!
