A reminder: the City of Boston hosts its community meeting on the Northern Avenue Bridge Project tonight at from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the District Hall Assembly Room (75 Northern Avenue in the Seaport District, one block east of the Courthouse Silver Line Station). Read our coverage of the project here.
Here are today’s headlines:
- A motorist assaulted a Somerville man with his vehicle in Cambridge Friday evening, inflicting non-life-threatening head injuries before fleeing the scene. Luckily, police were able to apprehend a suspect from a description of the vehicle from eyewitnesses (Boston Globe).
- Drivers who block handicapped ramps and bike lanes are upset about facing the consequences of their lawbreaking behavior (Boston Herald).
- Another commuter rail fatality this weekend: on Saturday morning, a Fairmount Line train killed a man who was apparently walking on the tracks near Truman Parkway (Universal Hub).
- The T tweeted some construction photos of a project that will add four miles of new passing track along the Franklin line:
Single track means one train can occupy an area at a time. This double-track project adds four miles of rail that will run parallel to the existing single track between Walpole & Norfolk. The addition of double track greatly increases operational flexibility & performance. pic.twitter.com/nCpSrmOhY8
