Casey Arborway, Boston

Massachusetts Department of Transportation
Boston, Massachusetts

Located in the Jamaica Plain neighborhood of Boston, the Casey Overpass carries Route 203, locally known as the Arborway. As a primary east-west connecting route in the area over Forest Hills, the Arborway is a major commuter hub with north/south roadway, bicycle, pedestrian and transit connections. In March 2011, MassDOT gathered an interdisciplinary team of engineers, planners and urban design professionals to determine how best to replace the structurally deficient Casey Overpass.

Through continued attention to detail, we guided the project through the planning, engineering and now the current construction phase of the project. The result is the de-elevation of the original arterial roadway and the birth of a tree lined boulevard and progressive network of at grade streets. The context sensitive design addresses both human scale and capacity needs.
