Car turned turtle under the Zakim Bridge

Kelly the roving UHub photographer ran across this typical Boston scene in an unusual spot - under the Zakim Bridge in Charlestown at what we're betting is part of a set for that Ryan Reynolds movie about the guy who realizes he's a character in a doomed online game, the one that's been getting filmed around Boston.

Bicyclist on the Zakim Bridge

Roving UHub videographer JP from Somerville captured this lad just pedaling across the Zakim around 5:30 p.m., adds:

There were about four other kids. I don’t know how or where they got off the highway but I think they must’ve taken the government center exit because they weren’t in the tunnel.

Sign on I-93 changed to reflect actual distance to Mass Ave and Zakim Bridge

Last Thursday, David Innis tweeted to MassDOT that something was amiss on this sign on I-93 south at the Somerville/Medford line - and not just that no times were showing up - because the Zakim and Mass. Ave. are nowhere near each other. By this morning, as you can see from the lower photo, the state had fixed the distance. Now if they can only get the time thing working (MassDOT says they're working on that).
