Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority
Boston, Massachusetts

The Columbus Avenue Bus Improvements Project enhances bus speed, reliability, and customer amenities within the Columbus Avenue corridor from Jackson Square through Egleston Square to Walnut Avenue. The project, currently in construction, provides center running bus lanes and accessible floating bus stops. The bus lanes will be operational early 2021. HSH closely coordinated with the MBTA and the City of Boston to ensure safety and accessibility for all transit riders, improve operations for vehicles, and meet the needs of all stakeholders involved of this rapid design and construction period. The $8M project was designed, permitted, and constructed in less than 18 months.
