Boston Chief Civil Engineer’s reply to my comments on Connect Historic Boston

I have discussed my comments on the Connect historic Boston project in an earlier post.

No Boston’s Chief Civil Engineer, Bill Egan, has replied — but actually, his reply is a non-reply. He doesn’t address the issues I raised about messing up — rather than improving — bus and taxi access to North Station. Or that the proposed bikeways, despite their name, make a large loop avoiding the historic sites in the North End. Or the faulty and hazardous proposed designs. Or…there’s more.

He quotes only research studies which are all highly biased and have been debunked, and dismisses studies linked from one of my Web sites, giving only one explanation: they are “outdated”. That is just what the people who produce bunkum studies would like to say, so people won’t read carefully-conducted older studies. Not all are so old either.

My comments are described and linked here.

Mr. Egan’s letter is here.
