DRAFT OF MEGAPLEX STUDY DEFERS STADIUM
Published September 12, 1994
The Boston Redevelopment Authority's unreleased draft of recommendations for a proposed downtown megaplex includes delaying construction of a 70,000-seat domed stadium until traffic concerns are further explored. State legislative leaders suggest building the convention center on a site which could later accomodate a stadium, but, as one source said: "There doesn't appear to be a site in Boston that can easily accommodate" the number of cars leaving the city on game days. If a stadium is omitted, the Weld administration is expected to reccommend state aid to refurbish Foxboro Stadium (Meg Vaillancourt, BOSTON GLOBE, 9/11).
