Welcome! The Lower Mystic Regional Working Group (LMRWG) is studying options to improve transportation in the Lower Mystic River region, an area encompassing parts of Boston, Everett, and Somerville and centered on the transportation hub of Sullivan Square, which has seen considerable development activity in recent years.

Although the Wynn Casino to be built in Everett is the most well-known project, other planned large-scale development proposals in the area have the potential for broad impacts on transportation in the region. The LMRWG was formed by MassDOT to study the effects these future projects may have on the entire area, identify opportunities to improve mobility, and to develop some short- and long-term transportation infrastructure and policy recommendations for improving transportation in and around Sullivan Square.

Through surveys, public meetings, discussions with local organizations, and social media outreach, the Working Group will be looking for ideas and seeking input on some of these proposed changes, from everyone who lives, works, commutes and recreates in the Lower Mystic region.
