Re: Unbuilt roads around metro Boston

That Woburn interchange has to be one of the worst in the state, considering its importance/traffic volume.

Re: Possible Boston soccer stadium | Discussion

How about the GE/Riverworks site in Lynn?

Would be cheaper land compared to somewhere like Allston. You could add more buses from Wonderland during games, and the commuter rail stops there. ...

Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

The Tobin isn't even in the same direction as the red line.

Anyway, the Tobin construction actually helps I-93 southbound slightly. There aren't as many cars getting through on the Tobin, so I-93...

JetBlue is also growing at Logan, with some more flights to Reagan and Charlotte.

Re: Unbuilt roads around metro Boston

Looks prohibitively expensive, definitively more so than a NSRL, which would be way better.

They're visible from Wellington Station, sitting at the yard.

Re: 5 Middlesex Avenue | Assembly Square | Somerville

Waltham and Burlington do, though they're suburban.

Re: 5 Middlesex Avenue | Assembly Square | Somerville

Nothing wrong with having offices next to the interstate. That's how it works in most suburban areas.

Re: The New Retail Thread

That crown goes to Portland ME. More breweries than Boston despite being much smaller.

Yah, it looks weird to have a sign on a glass building, unless it's a box like PWC

Re: Encore Boston Harbor Casino | Everett

The traffic from Wynn is overblown. Assembly will still probably have more daily users, when it's built out. But I don't hear the same outroar about Assembly.

Re: Encore Boston Harbor Casino | Everett

It's a 25 min trip non express, and a 20 min trip express.

Reliability wise, I've taken the Haverhill daily, and i'd say you have a minor delay (5-10 mins) about once a week, a major delay (over...

No pictures, but when I walked by this today it looks like they're taking off an additional floor of the garage.

Tangent, I don't think you've ever driven Sullivan during rush hour. Sullivan would turn into gridlock with 2k extra cars.

What i'd like to see is better service to Anderson Woburn. There is a...

Re: The Boston "what if" thread

I don't think traffic would be any better.

Boston is too dense for cars. The mid 20th century mindset that cars were the future has proven to be false.

Thanks Tim

I think we all have some grievances for how this process was handled, but none of it is on Ed. I think we should give Ed a chance.

Re: State Street HQ | One Congress | Bulfinch Crossing | West End

If true, that means that the garage should be coming down ASAP.

I'm excited. I was also worried that the garage would stay up after the office and residential towers were built.

Re: Crazy Transit Pitches

I don't see there being any appetite for a Provincetown train from Boston, since the ferry would be much faster.

Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

That's far from the biggest issue. Destroying the horribly outdated signal box is why it's taking so long to fix.

Re: archBOSTON Update: A New Dawn

Any reason why Statler is no longer mod?

He was a good mod, I think. It's fine if he wants to step down, but I was just wondering.

Re: Regional Rail (including North-South Rail Link)

Traffic is getting so f-ing terrible though. Without transit, the region can't grow.
