Northern Ave. bridge, and how government backs into bad decisions
The Boston Globe - 01/28/2016
Lynch and the judges presume that adding a vehicular connection will reduce traffic in the area. There is no evidence for this belief. Peter Furth, a professor of civil engineering at Northeastern, notes that the configuration of roadways around Northern Avenue limits its ability to alleviate traffic congestion in and out of the Seaport District. The bridge “has very little capacity for doing that,” he said.
