The City of Boston will host a ribbon cutting ceremony on Thursday, May 23 to celebrate the completion of Connect Historic Boston.
This three-year project was made up of several parts:
- Expanded sidewalks in the Blackstone Block.
- Construction of the green, separated Connect Historic Bike Trail along Staniford Street, Causeway Street, Commercial Street, and Atlantic Avenue.
- Rebuilding of Joy Street as a shared roadway without a curb on one side to slow vehicular traffic and increase pedestrian safety.
- Reconstructing Constitution Road in Charlestown with a separated cycle track through the area.
The construction caused a lot of headaches over the past few years, in the North End / Waterfront in particular, there was much frustration during the cycle track construction.
