Harvard undergrads on how to connect Allston & Cambridge

SEAS tackles Cambridge/ Allston links in design class — The Harvard University Gazette

15 students spent a semester thinking about how to keep the campus together even as it expands across the Charles River. Their conclusions:

  1. Redesign the Larz Anderson Bridge - put Memorial Drive underground to segment pedestrian from vehicular traffic, eliminate time-consuming crosswalks, improve safety, and create new green space
  2. Expand the current shuttle system with the addition several six- to nine-passenger vans
  3. Create a virtual campus using the Internet to provide additional means for interaction, through instant messaging, avatars, and video conferencing
