I am proud to announce that the FY23-27 MBTA Capital Investment Plan (CIP) included an allocation of $200,000 for a sound/noise study in the Readville and Hyde Park neighborhood of the City of Boston. I was happy to author a joint letter with Rep. Bill Driscoll, Senator Mike Rush and Councilor Ricardo Arroyo advocating for this important funding allocation for our community. The issue of noise around the Readville station, the MBTA Readville Commuter Rail Yard and along the Fairmount line have been an issue for many years. The issue continues today with many complaints about reverberating or vibrational noise being heard and felt, especially overnight. Many community groups in Hyde Park, Readville and the town of Milton have complained about the issue. This sound/noise study will be an important step to finally determining a source of the noise so we can work together on solutions to this problem. Please use the form below to submit your comments regarding the study.

DCR is studying concepts to create better connections between existing recreational and open space assets, and in so doing enhance access to open space, transit, and commercial amenities for all residents of the Hyde Park/Mattapan/Milton neighborhoods bordering the Neponset River.

Specifically, there is a feasibility study will evaluate different concepts for connecting the Neponset River Greenway along Truman Parkway to Neponset Valley Parkway east of Paul’s Bridge and ultimately to the Blue Hills Reservation via Route 138, where MassDOT is designing a shared-use path. This would provide pedestrian and bicycle connections not only to the Blue Hills reservation but also to Fowl Meadow. The study will also look at concepts for enhancing pedestrian and bicycle connections to and from Readville.

On September 20th, DCR held a public listening session to gather initial input from the community and to lay the groundwork for evaluating options to connect these recreational facilities. This is the first step in a longer process that will allow for further community feedback. To see a recording of their meeting, a slide deck explaining the project so far, and to provide public comment, please see the link below.
