Matt Frank watched the sun go down over Boston Harbor and the Zakim Bridge this evening.
Around 3 p.m. on the northbound side. State Police report the bridge is now open again.
Last Thursday, David Innis tweeted to MassDOT that something was amiss on this sign on I-93 south at the Somerville/Medford line - and not just that no times were showing up - because the Zakim and Mass. Ave. are nowhere near each other. By this morning, as you can see from the lower photo, the state had fixed the distance. Now if they can only get the time thing working (MassDOT says they're working on that).
"This can't be legal, right?" Katie Arsenault asks about the unusual sight she saw on the Zakim this afternoon.
Tim shows us one of the cars in a two-car crash on Leverett connector northbound around 8:30 a.m.
Nick Cosky was taking a long-exposure photo of the Zakim from North Point Park in Cambridge when a plane flew by last night.
The Zakim gets all the attention, but the old commuter-rail bridge next to it has its own charms, including a spiral staircase to the top. Molly Hester admired its form from North Point Park in Cambridge yesterday.
You can get some weird perspectives when you stand under the Zakim Bridge and its connecting ramps and look up.
Under the new deck.
A homeless man who figured out how to enter one of the Zakim Bridge's towers climbed to the top and stole a 60-lb. airplane warning light last month - the second one he's stolen - State Police charge.
Clifford Beckford, 34, allegedly stashed his newest light at the historic Warren Tavern in Charlestown, after leaving the first light outside the Old State House in downtown Boston, State Police say.
