Mystic River Crossing

FPA is managing the environmental review and permitting for the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation’s (DCR) proposed bicycle and pedestrian crossing over the Mystic River between Everett and Somerville, MA. The bridge will be a transformative structure for the Boston area, as it will connect key multiuse pathways between these cities as well as connect the Lower Broadway District in Everett, which includes the Encore Boston Harbor resort and DCR Gateway Park, to the DCR Draw Seven Park, MBTA’s Orange Line Assembly Station, and Assembly Square in Somerville. Key federal, state, and local permits will be obtained from the US Coast Guard, US Army Corps of Engineers, state Department of Environmental Protection, and the Somerville and Everett Conservation Commissions. FPA’s experienced waterfront development team will guide the project through myriad permit/approval submittals and reviews to enable construction start in 2021.
