I took the day off from work today...but let me take some time to discuss the Leverett Circle debacle.

I am not sure who this Leverett person is or was, but the circle is awful. It's the place where Storrow Drive, Route 28, and the onramps to Route 93 meet...and some other smaller roads like Nashua St.

They have taken down the elevated pedestrian walkways, so now there are big crosswalks for people to use...since there is a Green line stop nearby. Pros: prettier intersection. Cons: more traffic.

The worst part for me is the lack of a right turn arrow for cars coming off Route 28. Right now, if you travel south down 28, you are meet with a standard traffic light. Unfortunately, people don't know they can turn right on red.

Please see this post for more information.

There is still a lot of work to be done on this intersection....and it seems like it hasn't improved in the past 8 months.

I am confident that everything will be finalized soon enough. .
