The Boston Cyclists Union is throwing a shindig tonight at JJ Foley's Fireside Tavern in Forest Hills to celebrate the state's decision on the Casey Overpass. Starts at 6 p.m., with free appetizers.
The state's decision was to replace the crumbling structure with expanded and reconfigured surface roads, but the union is hoping folks who wanted to see a new overpass will come as well:
We invite you to turn the page with us toward a new future for Forest Hills that will help small businesses, make a more inviting area for walkers and bicyclists, and reconnect this gap in the Emerald Necklace. This is a great opportunity also for people on both sides of the debate we all just came through to shake hands and strategize about how we can make this a project all of us will be proud of for the decades to come.
