Representatives of the LMA Bike group have discussed with MASCO and its member institutions the need for additional safety measures to protect cyclists from injury as they commute in and around the Longwood Area.
MASCO has a two year plan to study where additional bike lanes, connections to paths and other measures might be feasible. The plans take into consideration that employee access by bus, walking and bicycling and patient auto and ambulance access are all very important in this medical and academic area.
Studies are progressing on several sections of Brookline and Longwood Avenues where we believe action may be possible in the short term by working with city and state property owners to secure design approval and work out actual implementation funding. Plan review meetings with the public will be coordinated through the public agencies.
