Utility Corridor and Roadway Relocation
(Click on the image above to enlarge it)
To support the implementation of its Master Plan, UMass Boston is working on plans to develop a new utility corridor and roadway network.
The Utility Corridor and Roadway Relocation (UCRR) project, currently under construction, includes:
- a new utility corridor to support future buildings and provide reliable and redundant utility services to the campus
- a new two-way roadway network that will provide various amenities including bike lanes, tree lawns, and sidewalks throughout the campus
Two-way traffic on the campus roads is one of the UCRR changes already in effect. As part of the project, UMass Boston's existing Central Utility Plant has also been upgraded to ensure the integrity of utility systems.
The project is being designed by BVH Integrated Services, Inc. and built by Bond Brothers. Construction began in spring 2013.
