Route 128 Today


Just as in its foundational years, the Route 128 story is about far more than what's going on along the beltway. Innovation is happening all over Eastern New England, from the biomedical cluster in the Kendall Square area near MIT to Southern New Hampshire and Maine.


In general, what constitutes "high tech" has grown more diverse around the region. Research, development, and manufacturing related to biotech, pharmaceuticals, and medical equipment has grown. Internet related companies are also well represented. And, crucially, the region remains a vital and active source of innovations and startups.
