“In advance of the first public meeting on the project, scheduled for Thursday night, the wish list for the project and accompanying free land is as wide-ranging as it is lengthy: A network of world-class bike and walking paths.

A new West Station that could provide a rapid transit rail link between Allston and Cambridge.” – excerpt from Plans for straightening Mass.
