The above information was analyzed to identify South Boston's 2020 transportation needs based upon highway capacity, geometry, and safety as well as other concerns raised by local officials and citizens. A public meeting was held Monday, May 13 from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM at Council Chambers, 502 Yancy Street to present the study findings and seek your input on the recommendations proposed for future improvements. The South Boston 2020 Transportation Plan was adopted by the Town on July 8, 2002.
