Wondering what the heck those green structures are under 93? Well, according to Steve Annear in an article in the Boston Globe, they are called artistic light fixtures referred to as “dinosaur lights” and are being used to create a new feel and vibe under the highway.
It’s part of the new park being built called Ink Underground. The new urban park will extend from Albany Street to For Point Channel and should be completed by May of this year. Not only will this project revitalize underutilized space it will also connect the two neighborhoods of Southie and the South End! Ink Underground is funded through a public private partnership between National Development and Massachusetts Department of Transportation’s (MassDOT) InfraSpace program.
The new park under 93 should be open any day now!
