Re: Volpe Transportation Center Development | Kendall Sq | Cambridge

It is. The Condition is the the winning bidder (MIT) has to build a new Volpe center first. Once Volpe moves from the old to the new bldg (and MIT delivers a dump truck full of cash to the Feds),...

Re: Congestion toll in Boston?

Is there any foreshadowing in the fact that the lane formerly known as HOV on 93 through Somerville has been relabeled "EXPRESS LANE" with no HOV requirements?

Re: Winthrop Center | 115 Winthrop Square | Financial District

Call me crazy but I think the removal of the trees is an enhancement to the adjacent historic building. I've been through there dozens of times and I literally never noticed that building. On...

Per AASHTO, a design speed of 45 mph (posted limit in the tunnel) requires 560 feet. Google maps measuring gives me... 590 feet from the curve on the ramp to the merge point. This CANNOT be a...

Not sure how much of the design has changed, but this was the last presentation that I saw:

Re: Charlie Card/MBTA Fare Replacement system

What cards are you using that are phasing them out? They just added the feature to both of my primary cards.



The big 4 eliminated the signature requirement last year.

Re: Charlie Card/MBTA Fare Replacement system

Have they shown how they would be laid out? Either way, it would be easy to just let people tap back out for a $0 transaction. If tap out is going to be required at the terminal stations, then...

Re: Encore Boston Harbor Casino | Everett

I would guess that there is a correlation with the type of the casino. A high end (i.e. Encore casino) is less likely to come with the negative effects of a low end venue.

Re: State Street HQ | One Congress | Bulfinch Crossing | West End

Totally dysfunctional crap. I couldn't walk in that garage without hitting my head on multiple pipes and other overhead infrastructure, and I am not unusually tall.

Re: Parcel P (Foundation Medicine) | 400 Summer Street | Seaport

The pedestrian connection between Congress and Summer is going to be fantastic. So annoying trying to walk in that area right now.

Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

Parking should be free for arrivals after 5:00. Most of the lots are at 10-20% utilization by 7:00, might as well incentivize additional off-peak ridership.

Re: Winthrop Center | 115 Winthrop Square | Financial District

I think that actually is accessible. If you look at the Page 22 render, the accessible route does something like 7 zig zags while the stairs cut through the ramping.
