Re: Unbuilt roads around metro Boston

I agree - it's the same as people who buy a house under the flight path of Logan and then complain.

Re: Unbuilt roads around metro Boston

The original plan looks like the massive stack interchanges you see in Houston and Los Angeles. The alternative HS-03 looks like the best of the bunch - too bad it's not done or under construction.

Re: Unbuilt roads around metro Boston

I don't see how they can rebuild, or enhance a key interchange without the use of flyover ramps. There are numerous interchanges in the metro area that could benefit from them and also modest...

Re: Logan Flight Additions

It's pretty amazing that 8 years ago, Japan Airlines announced Tokyo Narita to Boston flights (which commenced in April 2012) and now today Boston has several non-stop flights to Asia. Japan Airlines...

Re: Congestion toll in Boston?

Ideally 93, from the 3/93 split in Braintree to the Mass Ave exit, would be 4 full travel lanes in each direction, with a full breakdown lane on both the left and right shoulders and then down the...

Re: Unbuilt roads around metro Boston

This should have been built 30 years ago. The fact that the state never did anything to upgrade that interchange is awful. You have 95, a major highway, going down to a single lane and then into a...

Re: Possible Boston soccer stadium | Discussion

One of the biggest issues, from a noise standpoint, is how open Gillette is. Seattle was smart when they built their stadium - they put in those noise amplifying roof coverings. Look at all the...

Re: Possible Boston soccer stadium | Discussion

One of the biggest benefits to the way Philadelphia setup their stadium complex is that they'll never have to worry about land to build a new stadium, or new area. Simply put the new stadium or arena...

Re: Logan Flight Additions

Once Southwest leaves terminal A, that will give Delta 20 or 21 gates. It'll be interesting to see how they're able to make up to 200 flights a day work, especially given the that some gates get...

Thomas Cook cut service to Boston after last year. You can add them to the list along with Air Europa, Air Berlin and Eurowings as European carriers who have come and gone from Boston recently.

Re: Seaport Neighborhood - Infill and Discussion

While the height situation is not ideal, it is what it is. Logan airport is far too important to the city, metro area and region. Compared to how this area looked as recent as 15 years ago, this is a...

Re: Encore Boston Harbor Casino | Everett

One of the major issues with this area is the poor road infrastructure to begin with. This entire area should have seen a major upgrade and expansion given the casino was being built.

How long...
