Leaders for Regional Prosperity

The 495/MetroWest Partnership, through a unique public-private collaboration with businesses, municipalities, and other stakeholders, is the regional leader for creating an environment that prepares for and cultivates sustainable growth. We accomplish this by coordinating, educating, and advocating for solutions to regional constraints and limited natural resources.

Transportation Nightmares 2014

Following a successful nomination process in 2004, which identified the 495/MetroWest region's top transportation priorities and resulted in several studies and plans, new transit options, construction projects, and infrastructure improvements in the region, the 495/MetroWest Partnership again partnered with the MetroWest Daily News to identify the top ten Transportation Nightmares in the 495/MetroWest region. 

If you missed the reveal of the new Nightmares list,  be sure to check out the new interactive site and be part of the Partnership's advocacy for transportation investments in the region.  The Partnership thanks VHB for creating and hosting the site which includes interactive maps, updates on the 2004 Nightmares, and links to the MetroWest Daily News coverage!

The Partnership also thanks readers, residents, and employers for participating in the public nomination process, helping to focus the Partnership's advocacy efforts on the projects important to the residents and regional economy in 495/MetroWest!
