Cambridge is at a special, opportune crossroads: more residents than ever are cycling as incoming development applies ever more pressure to our auto infrastructure. The Grand Junction Path is a long-proposed and studied shared-use path and open space that will stretch from the Charles River to the Somerville Community Path, allowing safe passage for cyclists, walkers, and runners. The Grand Junction Path will encourage people to bike. It will make cycling, walking, and running safer. Most importantly, it will link the Somerville Community Path with the Charles River, creating a completely connected non-auto transit system, and setting a precedent for future green transit development in Cambridge, Boston, and beyond. At the same time, we will take cars off the road: alleviate traffic pressures, reduce auto carbon emissions and pollutions, free up parking spaces, and connect Somerville, East Cambridge, Kendall Square, Cambridgeport, and Allston-Brighton. Furthermore, we'll be showing our children - with action - that we value green transit, healthy physical/mental behavior, safe open spaces, and responsible neighborhood building. This path is a righteous no-brainer!
