After seeing a report on Boston Reddit from a motorist who said something fell and almost hit her car, maintenance crews went through the tunnel twice yesterday looking for evidence of something falling from the ceiling, a MassDOT spokesman says:
Our crews found nothing to indicate something had fallen from the ceiling of the tunnel and no debris or loose material on the ground to indicate anything had fallen. That was during rush hour, so they were driving through at low speeds and wouldn't have missed anything.
Today, we had our folks at the Highway Operations Center review video of the area for lengthy segments both before and after a time frame that this was said to have occurred. They also found nothing.
No one has contacted us directly regarding this. That said, we treat claims like this with the utmost sincerity but without much specificity, it makes it that much harder to confirm reports of debris. If you get any more information, please let us know.
