With the forthcoming extension of the Somerville community path along the green line route Cambridge needs to step up to make the Grand Junction pathway a reality. There seems to be more attention paid to E-W travel in the city that leaves some neighborhoods disconnected from their N-S neighbors. This path could really help unite the eastern quarter of Cambridge and provide a safe alternative route in the process. If this project progresses I think the Charles River crossing needs to be stressed. The BU bridge is not a safe crossing for bicyclists and does not provide access to the path on the Boston side of the river.
