At 11:08 a.m., the MBTA reported delays on inbound Green Line service due to a deceased trolley at Kenmore.

Earlier in the morning, the T reported similarly pining-for-the-fjords status on the Mattapan Line due to a no-longer-functioning trolley there - but that one was bad enough that the T was advising riders to just forget about it and take the Route 24 bus instead.

BU Today's Leslie Friday takes Hubway for a spin to find out what all of the fuss is about:

MORNING UPDATE: The Muddy River dropped below flood stage, even if barely, so Riverside service is running this morning - although river levels have started rising again (hourly river-level data).

LATER MORNING UPDATE: The Muddy River got all floody again, so the T put the dam back and stopped Riverside service.

Around 9 p.m., the MBTA blocked off the Fenway portal used by the Riverside line to prevent a recurrence of the 1996 floods that left Kenmore station submerged in 20 feet of water and required $40 million in repairs.

The move means Riverside commuters can expect delays tomorrow as they ride shuttle buses instead of trolleys between Reservoir and Kenmore, the T advises.

A federal monitoring station on the Muddy reported the normally docile river reached flood stage around 8:45 p.m. A T alert announcing the suspension of service between Kenmore and Reservoir went out not long after.

The Kenmore bus station is finally getting its scaly glass skin.

What if the MBTA decided to embark on a construction project to improve service on the D Line during Red Sox season and didn't tell anybody?

While everyone is preoccupied with the impending D Line shutdown, the T has been quietly working on another project that hasn't disrupted anyone's life. Trouble is, they don't seem to think that you want to know about it.

You just knew this was going to happen

Kenmore is still a series of glimmers of hope that quickly fade as leaps of progress turn into months of "Are they even doing anything?"

Seeing the banners at Copley and Arlington forced me to finally get around to resurrecting my transit blog.

You know those cool above-ground maps the T installed in the 1970s - then never updated? Paul Levy was looking at one at Kenmore and noticed all the long-gone names:

... Hospital of the House of the Good Samaritan; Peter Bent Brigham Hospital; Jimmy Fund Research Lab; State Teachers College of Boston; Boston English High School; New England Deaconess Hospital; Beth Israel Hospital; Sears Roebuck and Company; Children's Hospital Medical Center; Boston Lying Inn Hospital; Joslin Clinic. ...
