  1. These Newport guys have been moving like molasses going uphill. Police are barely present as they arbitrarily close lanes any time the want, causing havoc. What a joke.

    1. I have never seen a project move so impossibly slow before on campus, and possibly in Boston for that matter. They “work” for like 4 days they shut down and resume for another couple of days a month or two later. And all for a horribly designed, narrow, meandering bike lane better suited for mud run obstacle course than for an increasingly used commuter center of Boston.

  2. What I can’t quite understand is that they can replace the bridge over the Mass Pike in 2 weeks, but they can’t complete the sidewalks in two years !!!
