This report is a companion document to the BTD's Streetscape Guidelines for Boston's Major Roads, (1.94mb) which was issued in 1999. That document provides guidelines for developing appropriate streetscapes when constructing or reconstructing a "major road" in Boston. They were prepared to address public safety for all users and the equitable sharing of the public right-of-way for pedestrians, automobiles, bicycles, and public transportation vehicles.
