We will reflect on our early learnings by sharing historical stories and photos, and ask you to help us design a vision for the Route 128 West corridor region moving forward.

About 128 Business Council

In 1985, GTE Laboratories, Polaroid and The Nelson Companies jointly funded a transportation impact study of the area along Route 128 West between Route 2 and Route 20. The study concluded that increased traffic congestion would negatively impact the region if alternative solutions and traffic-reducing measures were not immediately implemented.

In 1987, two years after the study, 128 Business Council was formed to develop alternative transportation solutions, sustainability and environmentally-friendly practices that would enhance the vitality and economic attractive­ness of the 128 West region. 128 Business Council became the first Transportation Management Association in the Commonwealth and is entering it’s third decade of service to business, collegiate and residential community-based members.
