State formalizes plans to remove section of Robert Moses Parkway

Updated 2:14 p.m.

The state parks office today released the final version of a report formalizing a decision announced earlier this year to remove a two-mile stretch of the Robert Moses Parkway.

The issuance of a final scoping report is a procedural step which allows the state to begin design work on what has been called the first phase of planned changes to the parkway, taking out the stretch of highway between Main Street and Findlay Drive in the city's North End.

It will be replaced with a multi-use nature trail for pedestrians, bicyclists, cross-country skiers and others.

Some vehicular access to the gorge will remain at points along Whirlpool Street, which will be turned into a low-speed, two-lane parkway.

Read the report here. Here's a link to view appendices.
