Construction crews have been busy in recent months building new bus stops between Egleston and Jackson squares for dedicated bus lanes and stops that planners say will mean a faster ride to and from Jackson Square and Ruggles on the 22, 29 and 44 bus routes.
Once completed, what is now a four-lane road will become a two-lane road - with new bus-only lanes running down the middle:

In addition to the new lanes and stops, the city will also install better pedestrian crossings, for both passengers and people who just want to get from one side of the avenue to the other would getting pancaked.
Longer term, the corridor could become part of a high-speed bus route from Mattapan to the Longwood Medical Area.
