Patrick to announce plans to purchase T cars, overhaul Allston section of I-90 - Metro - The Boston Globe:
Patrick is expected to announce the launch of a $1.3 billion procurement for the new cars at a Tuesday morning meeting of the Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce, in addition to disclosing that toll money will be used to straighten the Allston section of the Massachusetts Turnpike.
The Allston renovation will eliminate turns before and after the toll booths to alleviate traffic congestion.
In addition, Patrick will also announce that the Allston section of the Pike will undergo an overhaul that will straighten the roadway to allow commuters to more easily pass through the area.
“We expect that we will be able to significantly improve traffic in the neighborhood,” Davey said.
That construction project will open up 60 acres of new development in the Beacon Park Rail Yard area.
