Boston Police alert us that Avenue de Lafaytte is now a two-way street between Chauncy and Harrison Avenue Extension:

New traffic signal equipment, signs and pavement markings will be in place to help drivers to navigate the new traffic pattern. The change is expected to reduce the number of vehicles that inadvertently enter the Downtown Crossing pedestrian only zone, and provide easier access from Downtown Crossing to the highway system, the Greenway and Chauncy Street.
