Explore parts of Commonwealth Avenue (or “Comm Ave,” as the locals call it), a city street traveled by 100,000+ people each day by foot, bicycle, trolley, bus, and motor vehicle. The group will traverse a suite of bike facility designs including left-side bike lanes, contraflow bike lanes, separated bike lanes, protected intersections, and riverfront paths.
Tour highlights include the completed reconstruction of a mile-long stretch of Comm Ave by Boston University. Completed in 2019, the project transformed the corridor into a Complete Street. It also represents a key turning point for the City of Boston and its partners, featuring innovative designs, new priorities, and momentum for future Vision Zero projects. Participants will hear about how the many different stakeholders—including the City of Boston, MassDOT, Boston University, transportation advocates, and local officials—collaborated to bring this project to reality.
