A worker became pinned around 10:45 a.m. at Dana Avenue, where crews are working to replace the bridge over the Fairmount Line train tracks. EMTs quickly responded - they have a station right at the bridge. First responders quickly got the man out and he was transported to a local trauma center. Police froze the scene until OSHA could arrive.

The Board of Appeal today approved plans to replace a three-family house at 7 Dana Ave. with a townhouse project of 12, two-bedroom units, one set aside as affordable.

The board unanimously approved the proposal, although board Chairwoman Christine Araujo asked for some plantings to screen what she said would otherwise look like "a very suburban, motel-looking structure."

A concerned citizen asks the city to post a "Deer Crossing" sign on Dana Avenue just up from the Milton line:

Deer spotted twice in location.

The state has posted deer-crossing signs in Stony Brook Reservation and on Truman Parkway inbound just past Neponset Valley Parkway.
