Public Meeting: Sullivan Square Station Lower Busway and Parking Lot Reconstruction

Meeting Info

Date: April 5, 2018 at 6:00pm

Location: The Schraffts Center, Cafeteria • 529 Main St • Charlestown, MA

Attendees: General Public

Event Description

The MBTA is currently working with Wynn Boston Harbor to implement roadway and transportation improvements to Sullivan Square—including the reconstruction of Sullivan Square Station's lower busway and parking lot—to enhance the level of service, performance, and passenger safety. Located in front of Sullivan Square Station, the upper and lower busways connect 12 bus lines, serving Boston, Malden, Medford, Somerville, Cambridge, and Everett.

Wynn is privately funding these improvements, and no public or tax payer funds are being used to pay for these improvements.

The planned improvements will upgrade, replace, or repair the roadway surface, pavement markings, drainage, bus shelters, lighting, security, traffic and wayfinding signage, and landscaping.

Improvements have been designed to:

  • improve traffic flow around the station
  • enhance pedestrian, bicycle and customer safety
  • increase bus operation capacity and efficiency
  • improve the station's accessibility

The construction will be phased to minimize disruptions to MBTA customers and maintain the current levels of transit and bus service for the duration of the project. Parking service will be reduced and at times fully relocated during construction.

Construction will begin in April 2018 and is scheduled to last approximately 7 months.
