Bulfinch Crossing, Boston

The HYM Investment Group, Inc.
Boston, Massachusetts

Since 2007, working with prior and current ownership, HSH has provided transportation planning, traffic engineering, and construction phase traffic and pedestrian management on this 2.9M square foot, mixed-use redevelopment. HSH completed the transportation components of the City and State environmental permitting processes, and continues to assist the Project Team as construction commences. The site includes the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) Haymarket Station, with access to the Green and Orange subway lines, and several local/regional bus routes. For various Project phases, HSH estimated the hourly ridership impact on these services, including a comparison to the MBTA’s “planning” and “crush” capacity thresholds, and on passenger platforms. Additionally, HSH provided design assistance for the new Haymarket Bus Station, which adds waiting capacity for bus passengers. 

In addition to the supporting conceptual and schematic design efforts, which include site circulation and access, loading dock design, and roadway, sidewalk and streetscape improvements to meet Complete Streets guidelines and standards, HSH provided construction management plans for on-going demolition and building phases. HSH has supported the project through highway, traffic engineering, and transportation planning efforts for the multi-phased development. Most recently, HSH assisted with bus rapid transit lane planning, and civil/traffic design services for the Congress Street Corridor. Work included the design and implementation of best management practices (BMPs) for sedimentation and erosion control, and coordination with Boston Water and Sewer Commission (BWSC) drainage improvements. HSH continues to support construction with offsite transportation phasing, and traffic engineering-related construction logistics.
