General Routing

Boston to Cambridge

History

Never built due to community opposition. Was to be Boston’s Inner Belt.

It first appears on a 1966 map, unnumbered, looping south from the Mass Pike at about Beacon St, crossing MA 9 near Harvard Medical School, then turning east to parallel Dudley St. The 695 number first appeared in 1971. By 1975, it was gone – all that remained were the long ramps from I-93 for Melnea Cass Blvd. (The 1975 AAA New England indicates this was posted as 695; I strongly doubt it).
