Defeating the Inner Belt

 In Spring 2022, Steve Kaiser organized a conference that featured many of the key players who stopped the Inner Belt highway. This project would have demolished 2,200 houses in Cambridgeport, but was blocked 50 years ago.

You can watch the full conference or see individual short videos for each of the 14 speakers. See


Thanks to all of those who stopped this highway and many thanks to Steve Kaiser for documenting this important story, with the support of so many and especially Becky Benfield and the Cambridge Historical Commission.
