A report that somebody jumped off the Neponset River Bridge around 8:15 p.m. brought Boston firefighters by land and sea until they got an update that the jumper was at the Granite Avenue drawbridge upstream a bit, where they met state troopers, who told them that it was a couple of kids jumping off the bridge - who came out soaking wet on the Dorchester side and then ran away when they spotted a statie looking at them.

Ed Coppinger, who happened to be right in the area, reports that 30 first responders showed up, before realizing it was just a couple of kids, not a potential suicide.

The Boston Cyclists Union reports town officials are looking at raised "cycle tracks" for either side of the highway as it passes Washington Street:

Perhaps the most interesting feature of the design proposed by Tedrow and the Bike Union are the “floating bus stops.” The concept is common in Europe and it is included in the NACTO Urban Bikeway Design Guide that many American cities including Boston now endorse, but it would be a first time it is used in Massachusetts. ... In essence, the bikeway travels behind the MBTA bus stop instead of in front of it, creating a crossing point where pedestrians can access the bus stop. The room for this marvel at Gateway East was provided by the removal of a unnecessary travel lane.
