The animation shows the bridge’s distinctive masonry towers will be removed early in the project. The warning is hereby sent to ConDucktors everywhere to modify the Duck Tours script that normally points out the “Salt & Pepper” bridge upon entering the Charles River. Perhaps an in-depth description of budgetary approvals and bridge superstructures will suffice.
Universal Hub reports a cable fire on the Green Line near the Arlington station is causing major transit headaches this morning. Stations are shut down in the Back Bay, with commuters waiting over 25 minutes for shuttle buses at Kenmore Station. Many are opting to walk the remainder of their commute in this morning’s 10 degree, windy weather.
Surface transit is also affected, with traffic clogged on Boylston St. from Arlington St. running west to the Prudential Tower. It also appears Silver Line buses are coming into service off their normal route as shuttles, replacing the Green Line.
