495 / MetroWest Partnership Update

The 495 / MetroWest Partnership recently released its “Partnership Update” report.  The report describes the Partnership’s continuing efforts to provide a forum for public and private community leaders on development-related issues in the 495 region, and to advocate for projects, improvements and policies that promote sustainable growth in the area.  (Disclaimer: I serve on the Partnership’s Board, although that doesn’t cloud my judgment  — these folks really are doing some great work!)

Among the initiatives that the Partnership has been working on are increased commuter rail service on the Worcester/Framingham line, the ongoing study of updates and improvements to the 495/Route 9 and 495/Mass. Turnpike interchanges, the Commonwealth’s Green Communities Program, the MassWorks program, and water infrastructure and stormwater issues and needs.  The Partnership’s report also details other transportation improvements in the region, including the Burns Bridge on Route 9 between Shrewsbury and Worcester, and the Route 9 Smart Growth Plan. 

For more on the 495 / Metrowest Partnership’s work, check out the report and the Partnership’s website.
