Forget the North-South rail link, how about a ferry instead?

North Shore commuters bound for the South Boston Waterfront know a thing or two about commuting agony. The patchwork of circuitous routes they must navigate to get from North Station to the various corners of the Seaport is the source of daily headaches.

 

But relief could come in the form of a 13-minute boat ride, engineered by the Massachusetts Convention Center Authority and funded by several local companies.

MCCA director says BCEC must be good neighbor as it expands

The Massachusetts Convention Center Authority will pay MassDOT $21 million to leave a key parcel of land on D Street as it prepares to re-imagine the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center’s future.

 

“Instead of building a building that cuts off and kills a neighborhood, we want to build something that’s integrated in the neighborhood,” said David Gibbons, the author­ity’s executive director. “The testing lab is kind of the linchpin in that, it’s right in the middle.”

 

Although the MCCA will demolish MassDOT’s testing lab later this year, Gibbons said the authority doesn’t have any specific plans for the parcel. The MCCA will include the land as part of a new master plan process aimed at guiding how the BCEC expands in the coming years.
