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?)
