In spring 2012, UMass Boston commenced its HarborWalk Improvements and Shoreline Stabilization project, a Phase One element of its 25-Year Campus Master Plan. The 800 linear foot section of the HarborWalk is located on university property between the John F. Kennedy Library and Museum and Old Harbor Park.
Goals for the project include:
- enhancing public access and accessibility to the waterfront
- improving connections between the campus and the waterfront
- protecting the shoreline segment of this stretch of Harborwalk to prevent further coastal erosion. Shoreline protection will include stabilizing the existing edge and eliminating the continued loss of debris (such as concrete and brick) into Boston Harbor.
The project is currently in the early stages of design. More information about the project will be added to this webpage as it becomes available.
