  1. It would be great if this map were included in the email sent from Somerville Constituent Services. As it is, that email is just the text of the phone call we receive. This map shows in 10 seconds what it took re-reading the text multiple times to understand.

  2. Jerad is dead on. Also useful to know- when exactly is this work expected to wrap up? is 8/12 really the last day of the construction? I live on Lowell St, and my daily commute takes me directly thought this, so I have to make a significant detour to avoid it.

  3. The map is awesome! Right on, Somerblog!

    Also note that the cross walk installation construction has been postponed from August 16th until after Labor Day. I'm assuming that's going to be another three or four day process.

  4. Thanks for the encouragment, Courtney. And if you ever want to embed the maps you see on here in your blog, I don't have a problem with that.
