Sign on I-93 changed to reflect actual distance to Mass Ave and Zakim Bridge

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).
