Commuters on Monday afternoon were treated to a rare site: a “storrowing,” but not on Storrow Drive: on I-93 in Medford at Roosevelt Circle.
A tractor trailer hauling a substantially large metal structure hit the Roosevelt Circle overpass while traveling southbound on I-93 early on in the Monday afternoon commute. According to the Boston Globe, damage to the outside beam on the Roosevelt Circle eastbound overpass is substantial and repairs could take months.
In other words, expect lane closures on that stretch of I-93 south and detours in and around the Roosevelt Circle rotary for the rest of the summer. And maybe longer.
Update on I-93 SB/Roosevelt Circle crash repairs in #Medford at exit 24. A max of 2 travel lanes will be open on I-93 SB for the Tuesday 7/20 AM commute, due to ongoing repairs to the overpass. The EB side of the bridge overpass will also be closed to travel.— Mass. Transportation (@MassDOT) July 20, 2021
Remember a year ago, when most of us were working from home? Can we go back to that? The working-from-home part, I mean?
