Boston – Neponset River Greenway Design Public Hearing
We’re very pleased to share that progress is being made with the proposed Neponset River Greenway extension project!
The project is a critical segment of MassDCR’s long-term, multi-phase plan for the 10.5-mile Neponset River Greenway linking the Blue Hills Reservation in Milton to Mattapan Square and continuing to Castle Island and the Boston Harborwalk.
The proposed project includes:
- Construction of a shared-use path, from Tenean Beach to Morrissey Boulevard, a total distance of approximately 3,600 feet (0.7 miles)
- A 670-foot long boardwalk, including scenic overlooks, to convey the path over the salt marsh and tidal habitat of the Dorchester Bay
- Drainage system improvements
- Wayfinding signage and pedestrian and bicycle roadway crossings
