Malcolm X Blvd. May Get Cycle Tracks

Written by Boston Biker on Nov 26

The city of Boston is eying Roxbury for a cycle track.

Although no money has been dedicated to the project, Boston Bikes, the city’s cycling department, has been buzzing about the track, which would be similar to the one installed on Western Avenue in Allston.

“There are a lot of benefits to having people out on the street riding,” said Kristopher Carter, interim director of Boston Bikes. “We’ve been looking for a concept for Malcolm X Boulevard.”

Carter said Boston Bikes, as well as the Harvard School of Public Health and Boston Public Health Commission, have been surveying the neighborhood with the goal of creating a track exclusively for bikes, stretching from Dudley Square to Roxbury Crossing.

“We are in the early phases; it’s certainly in the work plan for next year, but there are a lot of things to check off internally,” Carter said. (read the rest here)

We should have a cry in this city: More infrastructure! Better Infrastructure!

    The city has identified Dudley as the next up-and-coming neighborhood (definitely has potential, IMO) – it’s a shame they’re having to throw out a lot of incentives to attract development. unfortunately many local developers are redlining Roxbury – partly because they’re racist, but also because they seem to think they can’t really turn a profit. If I win the powerball, I’m going to buy up and develop property there. seriously. that’s where the money is going to be in 10-20 years.
