The Central Artery, officially known as the John F. Fitzgerald Expressway, is a section of freeway in downtown Boston, Massachusetts, designated as Interstate 93 (I-93), U.S. Route 1 (US 1) and Route 3. It was initially constructed in the 1950s as a partly elevated and partly tunneled divided highway and named after John F. Fitzgerald. Now, however, it is mostly made up of tunnels that were built during a ten-year period from the mid-1990s to the early 2000s as part of the Big Dig (Central Artery/Tunnel) project.

  • The Central Artery, officially known as the John F. Fitzgerald Expressway, is a section of freeway in downtown Boston, Massachusetts, designated as Interstate 93 (I-93), U.S. Route 1 (US 1) and Route 3. It was initially constructed in the 1950s as a partly elevated and partly tunneled divided highway and named after John F. Fitzgerald. Now, however, it is mostly made up of tunnels that were built during a ten-year period from the mid-1990s to the early 2000s as part of the Big Dig (Central Artery/Tunnel) project. The former route of the above ground Artery was known locally as "The Distressway", "the largest parking lot in the world", and "the other Green Monster", a reference to a famous part of the city's Fenway Park baseball stadium, due to the paint color of its girders and its disruption of previously uninterrupted passage between Boston neighborhoods. The structure was replaced mostly by open space known formally as the Rose Kennedy Greenway, named after the daughter of John F. Fitzgerald and the mother of John F. Kennedy. According to Massachusetts Executive Office of Transportation data, the Fitzgerald Expressway runs from the Massachusetts Avenue Connector just beyond Andrew Square in South Boston north to the split with U.S. Route 1 in Charlestown. Along with the harbor tunnels and the Turnpike from Route 128 to East Boston, it is part of the Metropolitan Highway System. (en)
  • Der John F. Fitzgerald Expressway (auch Central Artery) ist ein Teilstück eines Freeways im Stadtzentrum von Boston im Bundesstaat Massachusetts der Vereinigten Staaten. Er wurde nach John F. Fitzgerald benannt und ist zugleich ausgewiesen als Interstate 93, U.S. Highway 1 und Massachusetts Route 3. Der Expressway wurde ursprünglich in den 1950er Jahren als teilweise aufgeständerte, teilweise durch Tunnel geführte Strecke errichtet, verläuft heute jedoch so gut wie ausschließlich durch Tunnel, die im Zuge des Big Dig gebaut wurden und die ehemals oberirdisch verlaufende Central Artery in den Untergrund verlegten. Die ehemalige, oberirdisch verlaufende Strecke war vor dem Umbau als , oder auch – vorwiegend aufgrund ihrer grünen Stützträger – als bekannt. Nach dem Abriss der oberirdischen Fahrbahn wurde diese durch den Rose Kennedy Greenway ersetzt. Der Expressway führt von der Verbindung zur Massachusetts Avenue am Andrew Square im Stadtteil South Boston von Süden nach Norden bis zum Abzweig des U.S. Highway 1 im Stadtteil Charlestown. Gemeinsam mit den Tunneln unter dem Boston Harbor und dem Teilstück des Massachusetts Turnpike von der Massachusetts Route 128 bis nach East Boston gehört der John F. Fitzgerald Expressway zum Metropolitan Highway System. (de)
