I just want to say that as a frequent commuter from Belmont to 95N via Rt 2W, that the diversion of traffic from the Haden ave on-ramp temporarily utilizing the breakdown lane for northbound 95 traffic has worked out beautifully.
This is probably the best traffic flow we’ve ever had at this important intersection.
It creates a natural flow for northbound AM traffic and a longer “runway” for slower southbound traffic. I would venture to say that traffic is flowing better now with one lane closed off than it ever has in the past. I suggested this a long time ago and was told it would (literally) take an act of congress to get this implemented. I guess Congress gives waivers for construction, but wouldn’t it just be grand if we could have this sensible, logical, functional ramp implementation even after we get back the missing left hand lane?
We can only dream……..But I suspect that’s all it is…a dream…
