Month: May 2013

I’m always amused when two people I know on Facebook are connected in a way I wasn’t aware of. Today, I had two friends post that they were new aunts again… to boys with the same name. Took me a few moments to process that their siblings were married to each other.

Actual content updates

Just added location maps to all the pages in the Mass Route Log for currently active numbered routes.

Also added tags for all the towns in Massachusetts. Hopefully I’ll figure out a way to easily add those tags to each of the route pages.

Suggestion to Build a MA 9 – I 290 connector

The Image of Worcester: Connecting to/from Route 9 in Shrewsbury, Worcester’s Eastern Gateway:

“[T]here seems to be a unique opportunity to construct a 1.7 mile connector highway between I-290 and Route 9 along an existing power line right-of-way (ROW).”

An interesting concept, to be sure. Eric also has a well-thought out public transit system upgrade for Worcester that I like the sounds of.

New Book in the Library

One of the items under the Christmas tree this year was a copy of “Turnpikes of New England” by Frederic J. Wood and Ronald Dale Karr. I’ve done some flipping through it, not enough to give a full review but it looks like it’ll be pretty interesting and a good reference for posts here.
