The Chelsea Record reports MBTA and Massport officials now acknowledge the constant raising of the Chelsea Bridge for ships even during rush hour is screwing up Silver Line and other bus service and commuters and that they are hoping to convince the Coast Guard to go along with a pilot plan to bar most maritime traffic - but not oil tankers - under the bridge for two hours in the morning and again in the late afternoon.

New bus/bike lane in Roslindale

Sometime overnight, a city crew painted the town red - or at least the morning bus/bike lane from Roslindale Square to Forest Hills - as BNF shows us.

The lane, in effect since June, requires people to move their cars before the morning rush hour so that commuters on all the buses that funnel down Washington Street from Roslindale, West Roxbury and Mattapan, along with bicyclists, can get a faster ride to the T stop.
