Ooops! Harvard's proposed construction access is much closer to the neighborhood

On page 4-114 of the Science Complex DPIR, a drawing shows a possible route for truck access to the Science Complex site. The drawing is wrong! This is not really what Harvard is proposing. The purple line in the drawing shows the access staying north of the Sears building foundation and staying a safe distance from the nearest homes.

What Harvard is REALLY proposing

It may seem like a short distance, but hundreds of trucks a day will use this haul road, and bringing it so much closer to the homes on Windom and Hopedale will not be good for the people who live there.

Fortunately, there are alternatives that seem feasible and would be much less disruptive to people in the neighborhood.
