Re: Conley Terminal Dedicated Freight Corridor

For some reason this park and the mixed use path are surrounded by a fence with gates that are closed at night.

Why aren't people allowed to bike home safely at night?

The old Conley entrance seems to be closed to all vehicle traffic now, not just trucks, so there's even less traffic on 1st/Farragut/Shore Drive now that just removing the trucks.

Is it supposed to be a mixed-use path or is it supposed to be a pedestrian path?

Re: Conley Terminal Dedicated Freight Corridor

http://www.massport.com/conley-termi...-for-truckers/ says truckers can pick up and drop off containers between 8 AM and 5 PM Monday through Friday. Does it make sense for those hours to overlap with rush hour?

The Cedar St / Summer St light in Somerville, for traffic coming from Union Sq headed towards Davis, now has the usual three round bulbs red over yellow over green, plus a fourth bulb which is a yellow left arrow at the bottom that flashes simultaneously with at least some of the green time, and I don't think there's a dedicated left turn lane there.

(And maybe there's a better term than bulb?)

Re: Conley Terminal Dedicated Freight Corridor

Dredging, seawall construction and expansion of the pier.

Re: Conley Terminal Dedicated Freight Corridor



Noticed that they have moved a new barge to the power station site. Looks like some kind of official operation. I don't think the expansion of the Conley goes this far west(?). Maybe it supports the dredging operation.

Um, what? You can't turn left there; Cedar is one-way from Somerville Ave to Summer St.

(And this is maybe a little off-topic? )

Re: the Cape Elizabeth survey vessel.

https://www.marinetraffic.com/en/pho...74011/#forward

On the marinetraffic site, it is designated as a MMS, which might mean Minerals Management Service (Dept of the Interior), or Marine Mammal Survey (Dept. of the Interior). Minerals does leases of offshore oil.

Plot of the recent tracks has it going out to a point east of Winthrop and southeast of Nahant, and back. According to the photos, it went out on New Year's Day. So may be doing fisheries surveys.

You can't turn right there if you're heading toward Davis. The observations about the traffic light are accurate. If you're heading toward Davis, it's left turn only. Cedar is one way from Highland to Elm (technically the last stretch between Elm and Somerville Ave. is Mossland St.).
