Digging Into UMass Boston's Transformational Utility, Landscape, and Roadway Project
Published 2019 SCUP Annual Conference | July 2019
Presented by Dorothy F. Renaghan, Ian Scherling, James Velleman

The University of Massachusetts Boston was an insular, car-centric campus built on a former landfill. Now, it is becoming an inviting and pedestrian friendly campus, updated for the 21st century. We'll describe the massive Utility Corridor and Roadway Relocation project that transformed the campus and share lessons learned from implementing a master plan—with focus on landscape design, multi-modal access and circulation, sustainability, and new utilities—while maintaining an occupied campus on an environmentally unique oceanside site.
