Connect Mary Ellen Welch Greenway and Winthrop Greenway within the Orient Heights Station area

"The area is envisioned as the nexus of the shared-use path network. Path alignments proposed in the East Boston Master Plan (2000) were refined in the Orient Heights Square and Suffolk Downs Square vision concepts. The vision incorporates the preferred Winthrop Greenway alignment along the Orient Heights Station parking lot as well as safety and greenway improvements to Bennington Street. The MBTA’s Bus Network Redesign proposes Winthrop bound bus routes to extend into East Boston and Revere. With these routes no longer terminating at Orient Heights Station, the redundant south bus loop parallel to Barnes Avenue should be repurposed to connect the Mary Ellen Welch Greenway and Winthrop Greenway to each other and the Blue Line. Implementation of a Pedal & Park facility and bikeshare station would expand station-access options for MBTA passengers." (Source: "PLAN: East Boston," pg 177)
