I know what you mean; I go through there probably 3x per week. Can you think of any solutions that are practical that might be put into action? I don't think there's any way they'll reduce the lanes...

It's one of these six locations. Trust me; I'm psychic.

Where will the NE Revolution build a new stadium? One of these locations. (The stadium & parking lots cover ~20 acres of land.)

Re: Tremont Crossing | Roxbury

This was supposed to break ground (the 92nd time promised) "in May" according to the developer. Did it? Are they even moving dirt around?

There are a few neighbors and they have been vocal, a long time ago (YR 1999 & 2000) and now, including some on this board.
