Neponset River Esplanade Greenway Trail

BSC Group provided design and construction administration services for the Neponset River Reservation Master Plan, a continuous greenway trail connecting to the Lower Neponset River Estuary Area of Critical Environmental Concern. The trail begins at Mattapan Square on the Boston/Milton line and proceeds southwesterly along the edge of Truman Parkway, terminating at Moynihan Playground and the Martini Shell. BSC provided ecological science support, permitting strategy, and environmental permitting and planning services during Phase I Planning, as well as civil/site engineering, traffic engineering, and environmental permitting for the project’s design phase. The trail is eight-foot wide, paved pathway along the Neponset River, and as such careful design was required to protect and save as many of the trees located along the edge of road as possible.
