Transportation, safety, and other improvement opportunities near the Charles River

Almost 2 years ago, a Brighton resident wrote to the Boston Globe's GlobeWatch about the unsafe situation at "the congested, sprawling intersection at Leo M. Birmingham Parkway and Soldiers Field Road between the Arsenal Street Bridge and Western Avenue." A DCR spokeswoman told the Globe that "We're going to take a look at that intersection as soon as we can." I don't know if DCR has taken a look yet, but no improvements have been made.

With all the talk about bicycles, pedestrians, the environment, and creating more healthy lifestyles, here are a few videos showing some opportunities for improvements at that intersection and a couple other nearby locations.
