Now in its sixth year of construction, the project's transportation improvements are highly visible between Boston's South End/Back Bay and Forest Hills in Jamaica Plain.

Approximately 90 percent of the construction for the new transit and rail lines, streets and bridges, with a value of $ million, has been completed as of December 1,   Yet while traffic proliferates, most public transportation use has dropped.

The outlier is commuter rail, which has surged. But in the last five years, subway ridership has fallen 10 percent and bus ridership is down 4 percent, according to the most recent data.

Auto and truck traffic should be examined separately because trucks are not allowed on Storrow Drive and therefore use neighborhood streets for access into the Longwood Medical Area, Back Bay and elsewhere. NEED FOR THE PROJECT.

Discussion of the need for the project is minimal and there is room for significant improvement. The campus of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology is located on a acre (68 ha) tract in Cambridge, Massachusetts, United campus spans approximately one mile ( km) of the north side of the Charles River basin directly opposite the Back Bay neighborhood of Boston, Massachusetts.

Basic: Linear transportation.
