Mass. Ave. Corridor logoAnalysis in advance of  hearing

Current support, for and against the Mass. Ave. Corridor project, became clearer at the second Town Hall hearing, held Tuesday, Feb. 26. Town website link >>

Adam Auster, in his Word on the Street blog, provides an analysis of the comments made by the public at the April 2011 hearing at Town Hall about the Mass. Ave. Corridor project, concluding that community support was strong at the time.

A key feature of this analysis is publication of the complete hearing transcript.

UPDATES: In a post Feb. 18, the schedule appears to have slipped by three months. The author is reporting further analysis about differences between federal and state highway bureaucracies.

On Feb. 19, Auster posted an entry headlined "Untested highway software not used anywhere else in Mass."

On Feb. 21, Auster added "Why four lanes don't fit."
