McMahon led a multi-disciplinary team to plan and re-design this roadway in the Dorchester neighborhood of Boston as a Complete Street. As the central spine for Columbia Point institutions and neighborhoods, the project will result in a multimodal corridor linking the JFK/UMass transit station and the City of Boston’s Harborwalk. McMahon led the transportation analysis and 25% design, which incorporated vehicles, pedestrians, bicycles, and transit and school bus access.

The project included evaluation of existing bus stop locations and determining appropriate consolidation, elimination or relocation of stops, as well as the addition or replacement of amenities, such as shelters and benches that tie into the new pedestrian/bicycle accommodations and streetscaping. In addition, the project team incorporated other design disciplines – including wayfinding, landscape architecture, and “tactical urbanism” – to test improvements for the public realm.

The final product is a 25% design plan supported through a robust stakeholder and public outreach effort.
