Somebody at MassDOT has been busy with the alternate messages on area roads, as Max Pennock noticed today.
A concerned citizen requests that the city replace the "END" sign that used to designate the spot in Kenmore Square where Rte. 20 ends:
Prior to the reconstruction of Kenmore Square there was a sign marking the terminus of U.S. Route 20 (an important marker given its 3,365 mile span, the longest road in the United States). This image is attached, taken around 2005. After reconstruction the sign does not appear to have been replaced. Is there a reason this has not been replaced? Perhaps it could be added to the "Bicycles Stop On Line for Green" post that is on the island between Comm Ave. eastbound/Beacon St.

Boston officials plan to drop the speed limit to 20 m.p.h. in small sections of Jamaica Plain and Dorchester - and to seek state permission to reduce the default citywide speed limit to 25 - as part of efforts to reduce the number of crash-related injuries and deaths in the city.
The "Neighborhood Slow Streets" proposals for the Stony Brook and Talbot-Triangle areas could then become blueprints for reducing bad crashes on neighborhood streets across Boston. Read more.

Dervin Hibbert, 54, faces up to 15 years in prison following his conviction today on charges he drunkenly drove a minivan backwards down Cummins Highway on Nov. 23, 2013, hitting and dragging Walter Harris to his death, the Suffolk County District Attorney's office reports.
