Boston had nation's worst rush-hour traffic congestion in 2018

By Tom Acitelli - Curbed Boston 

Boston drivers wasted an average of 164 hours in rush-hour traffic in 2018, the highest total among U.S. cities, according to a new report from research firm INRIX

The company analyzes millions of bits of data for its annual Global Traffic Scorecard. Boston always scores rather high, but this year the city appears to have rated particularly bad. 

For the first time, too, INRIX looked at commutes in terms of peak (slowest travel times) versus inter-peak (fastest point between morning and afternoon commutes) travel times. In Boston on average, commutes increased 27 percent during peak versus inter-peak hours.

There was a bit of good news in the report. “[I]n cities like Boston, Washington, D.C., and Chicago, a higher proportion of trips are taken via public transportation, walking, or cycling.” Any car trips then are more likely to be related to business, the report said—unlike in, say, Los Angeles, where everyone drives everywhere for everything. In fact, INRIX said that L.A. was the most car-dependent city of the top 10. 

A rundown of that top 10 is below. 

Perhaps its status as the U.S. city with the worst rush-hour traffic will drive Boston’s leaders to reconsider congestion pricing once again. Or maybe the T will be fare-free sooner rather than later.

Downtown Boston's Motor Mart Garage slated for major redevelopment.

Courtesy of Tom Acitelli of Curbed Boston

The owners of the Motor Mart Garage at 201 Stuart Street in downtown Boston’s Park Square area have proposed planting a 20-story tower atop the 1,037-space facility.

If it gets built, the Motor Mart Garage tower would be the latest major conversion and/or replacement of a Boston parking facility recently, joining the ranks of the Government Center Garage and the old Winthrop Square Garage. 

That Park Street tower would have 306 apartments and condos as well as 672 parking spaces, including 144 for residents of the units above. The plans from CIM Group and Boston Global Investors would also add about 46,000 square feet of restaurant and retail space to the site.

The plans are in flux, of course. CIM and Boston Global are still looking at how to meet city requirements for affordable housing. And the scope and design might change under public scrutiny. But the would-be developers are not leaving one thing in particular to chance:

The winter solstice creates the least favorable conditions for sunlight in New England. The sun angle during the winter is lower than in any other season, causing the shadows in urban areas to elongate and be cast onto large portions of the surrounding area. 

At 9:00 a.m. during the winter solstice, new shadow from the Project will be cast to the northwest onto a portion of the Boston Public Garden and nearby rooftops. No new shadow will be cast onto nearby streets, sidewalks, or other public open spaces. 

At 12:00 p.m., new shadow from the Project will be cast to the north and will be limited to nearby rooftops. No new shadow will be cast onto nearby streets, sidewalks, bus stops, or public open spaces. 

At 3:00 p.m., new shadow from the Project will be cast to the northeast onto a portion of the Boston Common, and onto Tremont Street and its sidewalks as well as nearby rooftops. No new shadow will be cast onto nearby bus stops or other public open spaces.

Seaport's 150 Seaport Boulevard to be the St. Regis Residences, Boston. Billowy 22-story tower will have 114 luxury condos.

The famously billowy condo tower planned for 150 Seaport Boulevard, on the Seaport District sites of the Whiskey Priest and the Atlantic Beer Garden, will open as an outpost of the St. Regis luxury brand, according to developer Cronin Development.

The firm reached a licensing deal with Marriott International, which is not itself involved in the development. 

The tower is due to have 114 condos and to reach to 22 stories. A groundbreaking is expected this fall, with an opening scheduled for late 2020. 

Such an opening will cap a long time of back-and-forth on the plans. The Conservation Law Foundation, an environmental group, agreed in January to drop a lawsuit against the project in exchange for $13.1 million in funding for a waterfront park, a public dock, and children’s programming.

The group had opposed Cronin’s (very expensive) plans on zoning grounds because of concerns about public access to the waterfront.

As it stands now, the future condos will come with access to a suite of St. Regis-branded luxury services, including concierge and butler service, and to amenities such as a swimming pool, a spa, a health club, a library, and what the developer is calling a golf-simulation room. 

Then there’s the design of the building itself, courtesy of the late Howard Elkus of Elkus Manfredi. It is meant to evoke a billowy sail. 

Stay tuned for sales (the other kind). Those are expected to launch in the fall.
