Rte. 1 sign on VFW Parkway

The state recently put up this Rte. 1 sign on VFW Parkway northbound where it intersects with West Roxbury Parkway in West Roxbury.

It replaces a sign that for more than 20 years had the "1" painted over, because the state highway department rerouted Rte. 1 from the Storrow Drive/Fenway/Riverway/Jamaicaway/Arborway/Centre Street/VFW Parkway route it used to take to some weird 128/93/95 thing. Is DCR getting us ready for a change back, or was somebody in the sign shop just feeling nostalgic?

As I was driving down Commonwealth AVE between Clarendon and Berkley heading towards Arlington street with my windows open the sprinklers in the Commonwealth Mall went on soaking myself and the inside of my car with cold water.
