For once the T was not at fault; blame trucker for a Red Line halt

Rolled over truck

BlueEyesRedHair got a look at the 18-wheeler flipped on its side on the Expressway southbound at Savin Hill early this afternoon.

The rollover around 1 p.m. took out some fencing along the Red Line tracks, forcing the T to suspend service for a time between JFK/UMass and North Quincy, and roll out some replacement buses. Transit Police reported at 3:09 p.m. that what passes for regular service on the Red Line these days had resumed.



Like the job UHub is doing? Consider a contribution. Thanks!


I'm a T newbie.

My observation thus far is that when an entire transit system aligned itself with a song that repeats "He's the man who never returned", they clearly meant it.

No false advertising there. No, sir.

Can a truck rollover on a highway shut down subway service. The search for the next General Manager has come down to two names P.T. Barnum or David Copperfield.

Most of their post World War II rapid transit expansion was in the median of highways. If a truck end up hitting the wall, they'd be in the same shape. And yes, trucks aren't supposed to be in the innermost lane, but supposed to is often different than reality.

Considerable stretches of BART out in the SF Bay Area too.

I-205 was originally built with median space for future express bus expansion, but ended up getting light rail instead.

Much of the original MAX line from the Airport to Downtown runs in the median of the Banfield Freeway - aka I-84.

This is not an uncommon place or way to put in transit lines.
