Storrow Drive is a major crosstown parkway in Boston, Massachusetts, running east and north along the Charles River to Leverett Circle. It is restricted to cars; trucks and buses are not permitted on it. The road, legally known as James Jackson Storrow Memorial Drive, officially ends at its eastward junction with Route 28 (near Arlington Street) and continues as David G. Mugar Way (formerly Embankment Road), concurrent with Route 28.Take the guesswork out of planning a Boston vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.
Boston drivers use the route for quick access to downtown locations. Westbound Storrow Drive has a junction with the Harvard Bridge (Route 2A, or Mass. Ave). It passes along the northern edge of Boston University until it reaches a partial junction with the Boston University Bridge (Route 2), where it becomes Soldiers Field Road.
Both Storrow Drive and Soldiers Field Road are maintained by the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation and are part of the parkway system interconnecting the Emerald Necklace in Boston and Brookline. Together with Memorial Drive and the Cambridge Parkway, Storrow Drive is also part of the Charles River Basin Historic District (listed in the National Register of Historic Places). Prior to 1989, Storrow Drive also carried the US Route 1 designation; US Route 1 is now routed concurrently along Interstate 93.
