Report shows growing strain on Boston’s infrastructure
Boston Magazine - 06/07/2016
A new report released on Tuesday by business group A Better City shows that Greater Boston will likely need vast improvements to its infrastructure in order to meet growing population and traffic demands.
Conducted by researchers at Northeastern University’s Dukakis Center for Urban and Regional Policy, the study projects that there will be an additional 117,000 commuters in the region over the next 15 years.
At least 80,000 more cars, trucks, and tractor trailers are expected to hit the streets and highways, an increase of about 5 percent from 2010. Logan Airport will likely see a 63 percent increase in passengers on domestic and international flights.
