Moreover, the whole scandal which surrounded this project inevitably creates suspicion from the government and publicity on further city incentives. And so, new Boston projects on traffic management should take into account all the previous mistakes in order to be approved and financed. In the current situation, social responsibility and appropriate traffic priorities should be included into the city infrastructure project plans in the future.
In fact, the current city projects on traffic management cause more problems than improvements. In spite of tunnel construction, Boston is still in top-10 cities with the worst traffic in America with the congestion score 14.7 evaluated by INRIX (Hess and Weigley). In this context, in 2012 MassDOT spent half a million dollars on construction projects (57).

And so, the construction works that are created in order to improve life of Boston’s dwellers in exchange of this cause them injures and inconveniences.

In this context, the incidents with a woman who died in 2006 because of the project flaws (Fryer) and several injured workers on the tunnel construction indicate of social responsibility that is significant for each project in the area of traffic management.
