Channel 5 reports.
North Shore Dish, stuck right in the middle of it all, posted this trafficjamcam shot:
is that the far left lane westbound has been reopened.
And note how the car to the left of the photo has a Turnpike plate.
Our traffic-jam reporter alerted us at 2:28 that traffic was beginning to move again, but at a snail's pace.
Glad you noticed that there was a Turnpike guy ahead of us in traffic - actually spoke to him when he got out of his car to check out the scene. Nice guy; shrugged his shoulders and said, "Anybody got a football?"
