Our legislators are currently making decisions that will define what kind of
transportation system the Bay State will have for generations to come. Will we
as a Commonwealth make the necessary investments in our transit systems,
roads, bridges and sidewalks? Will we position our economy for the 21st
century? Or will we continue to “kick the can” on the issue and struggle with
broken down trains, potholes and crushing debt?
Over 200 people are expected to gather near North Station then hike over the new North Bank pedestrian bridge, which curves under the Zakim Bridge and over the MBTA commuter rail tracks. The walk will not only raise money for WalkBoston, but will celebrate what organizers describe as “an essential link” between the riverfront parks.
