DCR officials will be visiting Roslindale and Jamaica Plain twice in a week to discuss ways to make the Arborway and Centre Street safer from Hebrew SeniorLife and Forest Hills up to Jamaica Pond - even as expansion plans at Faulkner Hospital could mean more cars on the road. Read more.

I removed this from one of the posts regarding the Halloween storm for two reasons; I didn't want to hijack the original thread, and I wanted to flesh out things more.

Route 21 is a good route for those who use the Orange and Red lines and don't want to loop through downtown. On the off-peak and the weekends, Route 21 does run consistently (albeit infrequently; on Saturdays it's every 40 minutes and Sundays it"s every hour). Read more.

New monument to Stony Brook, creek that runs under the Arborway at Forest Hills

One of the finishing touches for the new Arborway roads at Forest Hills is this monument to Stony Brook, a Charles River tributary that now flows almost entirely underground from Hyde Park to the Charles, as Arborway chronicler Clay Harper shows us.

Tree vs. car in Jamaica Plain

Mark MacGilchrist came upon this crash on Arborway Road in Jamaica Plain shortly before 4 p.m., reports BPD and BFD showed up moments later. Rebecca Connors adds:

I saw someone standing next to the car, so I am hoping there were no serious injuries. Still, I don't get how so many cars crash along this divider. So many.

Widening a parkway in West Roxbury and Jamaica Plain

The Boston City Archives have posted this digitized film reel from 1932, showing the work to widen Centre Street between VFW Parkway in West Roxbury and the Arborway in Jamaica Plain.

A DPW inspector made the film (look for the brief shot of William T. Morrissey, the engineer who later got a boulevard in Dorchester named after him); his son donated it to the West Roxbury Historical Society, which in turn gave it to the Archives.
