Re: Encore Boston Harbor Casino | Everett

The worst part is that they made the exit from the rotary from Broadway northbound to Rt 16 eastbound two lanes, so circulating bikes need to not only take the lane (could use the shoulder before),...

Re: Four Seasons Tower @ CSC | 1 Dalton Street | Back Bay

The cobra heads you see are in the Red Line yard. The others are the standard LED replacements for the shoe-box style fixtures.

Re: North Washington St Bridge

I guess that's for the construction team to brainstorm. They're building a temporary bridge; they can and should also consider how to accommodate peds and bikes.

Re: North Washington St Bridge

Re: Hood Business Park | 480-570 Rutherford Avenue | Charlestown

912 parking spaces = live?

Re: The New Retail Thread

If you peek behind the covering, most of the facade of the lower floors has been removed. That was a few months ago, so I don't know what they've done since, if anything.

Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

Re: Biking in Boston

I'll add that they removed the Harborwalk underpass for the N Washington Bridge project, so there is no longer a connection there. I assume they will make some other accommodation? There is no...
