A while ago we received a question about the "No Turn on Red" sign at the intersection of Somerville Ave and the Beacon Street bridge. A recent comment on that post prompted me to look into this further. I called the city traffic engineer, who told me that he has put in a letter to the State essentially asking if we could remove the sign now that construction on Somerville Avenue is finished. I will update here with the response, which our engineer seems to think will be "yes."
This always seems to be the first things I am asked about whenever I am at a party or gathering and someone finds out I work for the City. Well, Andrew, Gwen, Anon. and anyone else who recently asked about the sign, let's hope this is resolved soon.
