DEVELOPMENT: Assembly Square Traffic Mitigation

Question/Comment: Please ensure that Assembly Square traffic mitigation work stays on schedule.

City Update 12/2/2009: Mass Highway is scheduled to complete the first leg of roadway construction in Assembly Square in the spring of 2010, thus allowing IKEA construction to begin.  The Office of Strategic Planning and Community Development's (OSPCD) current time line estimates that traffic mitigation construction will be completed by September of 2010, and IKEA construction and other roadway construction in Assembly Square will be completed by the end of 2010.

City Update 1/26/2009: Off-site traffic mitigation will begin in late 2009 and will be finished before IKEA opens.

City Update 5/14/2008: The Office of Strategic Planning and Community Development regularly tracks progress on mitigation plans. IKEA will not be permitted to open for business until certain traffic mitigation agreements are met.
