Governor Deval Patrick announces commitment to a major expansion in the I-90 Interchange project, 2:40 PM, September 18, 2014, Beacon Yards, Allston section of Boston, Massachusetts. The abandoned rail yards are now a 22-acre wasteland in the middle of the City of Boston. Funding, 1/3 from the Commonwealth, 1/3 from Harvard University and 1/3 from an unnamed third party will expand the project beyond repacement of an aging Turnpike viaduct, to construct West Station, providing rail access to the Boston University campus; improved rail service; bicycle and pedestrian connections including crossings of the barrier which the rail yards have imposed for many decades; This is the biggest development project in Boston since the filling of Back Bay over 100 years ago. I bicycled 7 miles each way in the rain to be there for the announcement, and I don’t regret it one bit!
