Saturday evening near the Longfellow, WBZ reports.
Good Lord! Shawn the roving UHub photographer wasn't roving very much around 6:40 a.m. when he took this photo of a blessed truck on everybody's favorite river road, the one with all the "CARS ONLY" signs at the entrance ramps:
When Storrow is bumper to bumper at 6:30 in the morning, you know thereâ€™s a truck.
Kara Sassone shows us the reason Soldiers Field Road is backed up onto Storrow Drive this morning. Or as she puts it:
Thanks. Thanks a lot.
Only a few hours after the Silber footbridge decapitated a truck, a slightly more alert truck driver narrowly managed to avoid a similar fate - and luckily for him, fellow commuters, such as Scrams, were in no mood to get out of their cars and tell him what they thought of having their rush hour extended.
Oh, lookee here at Storrow Drive inbound this morning, as Kara Sassone shows us. At least his brakes worked.
Jonathan Berks came upon what could have been an awful Storrowing involving a bike today.
Jared Dobson can only utter a hearty "Tis the season!" as he waits to get by a moving van with a driver alert enough to stop before slamming into a Storrow footbridge shortly before 6:30 p.m., if not alert enough to pay attention to any of the "CARS ONLY" signs earlier on his journey. Read more.
Kevin, meanwhile, gives us the eye-in-the-sky view from the footbridge:
Maybe state officials should extend their river-road warnings to big-rig companies, too. Lenny Rove watched State Police get an 18-wheeler off Storrow Drive westbound after it failed to hit any bridges.
DCR, MassDOT and State Police say that since 2007, there have been 25 recorded storrowings on Storrow and Memorial drives and Soldiers Field Road on weekends during which students flow into and out of the city. Read more.
A Cardi's truck driver with a possible reading deficit missed storrowing by inches this morning, jamming up traffic, Tim reports.
Lenny Rowe reports a convoy of seven Indian Trails buses was headed straight for a storrowing tonight. Fortunately for the passengers, however, the drivers of the two buses that actually close enough to Storrow to realize the doom that awaited them stopped in time and managed to back up on Berkeley. Unfortunately for all the other drivers in the area, that caused a backup.
Shortly after 7:30 a.m., a truck driver seemed to figure he felt more like a car driver this morning and didn't realize that wasn't the case he suddenly found himself unable to get under the footbridge just before the Kenmore/Fenway exits westbound, as hkergrrl shows us.
State Police arrived not long after and shut the road in both directions to get the fool thing off the road, after helping the driver to unwedge the truck and turn it around, as Jack Loughran observed: Read more.
5:45 and weâ€™ve got a truck stuck on Storrow.
Lenny Rowe watched a Storrowing that wasn't shortly after 10 a.m. today. But don't worry, traffic-jam fans: Police still shut down the road to let the trucker back up and find another way to head towards 93.
You wouldn't think it would need to be said, but apparently it does:
Motorists driving trucks, including box and rental trucks, are urged to check the height restrictions along their planned route and make route adjustments as necessary. Specifically, truck drivers on Storrow Drive, Soldiers Field Road, and Memorial Drive are urged to pay attention to all relevant signs regarding bridge height.
