Flyover sought to ease proposed Suffolk Downs casino traffic
Track officials unveil roadway plans for proposed resort in East Boston
Suffolk Downs would build a two-lane flyover on the northbound side of Route 1A to relieve one of its most consistent bottlenecks, as well as add lanes, lights, and other improvements around the track to help carry the traffic created by its proposed casino resort, track officials said Friday. The flyover would allow drivers to bypass the Boardman Street intersection, which is regularly tied up during the morning and evening rush hour. Other measures to reduce traffic could include new lanes and traffic signals, as well as an incentive program to encourage casino employees to use public transportation.
