MassDOT is required to consider options for covering the open ramp portions of Central Artery/Tunnel Parcels 6, 12 and 18 along the Rose Kennedy Greenway, resulting from environmental commitments made as part of the Central Artery/Tunnel project.

MassDOT and BRA officials have initiated a study to define potential cover alternatives and kicked off the work at an initial public meeting that was held on June 26th.  At this next public meeting, staff from MassDOT and the BRA, along with their consultant team, will provide an update on current and planned study activities, present information on existing conditions and potential redevelopment options, and also offer the public an opportunity to provide input on potential alternatives for the ramp parcels.
