Circle of hell
If you don’t recognize the name Kosciuszko Circle, you might if we added – the rotary near the State Police barracks near Moakely Park that is always a gridlocked nightmare at rush hour. Well, finally a local politician is speaking up and saying, “Uhhmm, we need to fix this.”
From a press release:
State Representative Nick Collins is advocating for an exploration of ways to improve Kosciuszko Circle, a major artery at the junction of South Boston and Dorchester.
Rep. Collins’ efforts coincide with Capital Conversations, a series of public forums hosted by the MassDOT, which seek community input into the wider conversation of transportation improvements across the Commonwealth.
“While the Olympic bid is over, it was a catalyst for innovative discussions that we desperately need to continue” said Rep. Collins. “Some intriguing and possibly transformative proposals were presented and we should continue working to make Boston’s transportation network more effective, reliable, and safe. I am happy to work with Mass DOT in reaching out and soliciting community engagement and dialogue. It is important that all citizens have an opportunity to contribute to the planning and long term priorities of our transportation system and our city.”
MassDOT will continue holding Capital Conversations all over the Commonwealth in the coming weeks.
