Traffic Signal at Intersection Of New Rutherford Ave & Rutherford Ave, Charlestown

This 311 user writes, “Please do something to solve the grid lock at this intersection. Drivers heading into the North End always block this intersection making it impossible for drivers coming off the Tobin to cross into Charlestown.

    1. Self quarantine, needs self discipline. No disabling, no quarantine. No masks either, I guess they figure Mayor Marty was just being stylish. After a couple of days of national declines, we hit whopping 41k new high today. There is really no end in sight.

    2. Well let’s be honest. The : were all in this together is a bunch of BS. Its more like every man ( or woman) for themselves. Situations like this bring out the best and worst in people.

  1. Considering the establishment owner is part of the crowd, you would think he’d embrace social distancing to get his numerous restaurants up and running quickly. Not a very good neighbor.

    1. While I wholeheartedly agree that this gathering is absolutely not OK, I blew up the photo to 300% and could not identify the owner. I don’t think the owner is in the photo…unless said establishments have changed hands unbeknownst to me.
