  1. This working at night on this road is a scam. Lots of overtime in exchange for keeping an entire neighborhood up all night. They could close this road during mid-day easily and give us back our sleep. I’d like to see some legislation to prevent this kind of disruption. Nstar kept me up a night last year working on N. Beacon. Something wrong with this picture.

    Also, we’ve been advocating speed bumps, parking bump-outs and crosswalks to slow the traffic down and make this road safe to cross. We’ve been asking councilors for these for over a year. Nada. Everyone passes the buck on DCR roads. And I guess Leo Roy is too busy planning parties to actually care about DCR property.
