Charlestown Navy Yard Clean-Up; Kendall Square Traffic

CHARLESTOWN—The city wants to clean up the Navy Yard to spur more development: "The Massachusetts Development Finance Agency would issue bonds for the work — the scope and cost of which have yet to be assessed — and the city would guarantee repayment through tax revenue generated in the district." [Herald]
BOSTON—Kendall Square's techies turn their know-how to a challenge very close to home: "People commuting to their jobs in this innovation hub face some of the state's worst traffic on a daily basis. Multiple bottlenecks — from the neighborhood's construction projects to the long-running repair of the Longfellow Bridge to the backed-up exit ramps funneling cars off major highways — are choking the dynamic business center."
