City Council Hearing

March, 2018

On March 26, City Council voted (7-2) to fill the Battery Street Tunnel.

As you can imagine, we were disappointed by this decision.  The approved plan calls for spending about $60 million (including incremental utility work) to fill the Battery Street Tunnel with inorganic debris.  If the plan remains unchanged, Battery Street will become a 7-block "dead zone,” without a single tree or bicycle or pedestrian amenity.
