Healthy Transportation Compact Makes Progress

The Healthy Transportation Compact annual meeting was on December 5th, where state officials gave progress and updates on the Compact, a creation of the 2009 transportation reform law that mandated that health, transportation, and environmental agencies work together to promote healthy transportation options.  The results of the “Grounding McGrath” health impact assessment (HIA) were provided, which served as a pilot HIA for the Compact and assessed the options for re-design of the McGrath Highway overpass through Somerville and the health impacts on Somerville and surrounding communities.  Learn more about the Compact and see all the presentations from the December 5th meeting here.
