Where are our state reps, senators?

There are 5 comments on the Nashoba Publishing story from Nov 6, 2009, titled Where are our state reps, senators?. In it, Nashoba Publishing reports that:

One of Massachusetts' biggest embarrassments is the Concord Route 2 Rotary. Every A.M. and P.M. the traffic is backed up two to three miles in all direction, making one of the worst daily traffic nightmares in the state.

The issue isn't with the design of the Concord rotary; the issue is the shear volume of cars trying to use it during the commute from the west. You simply can't design away traffic - a bypass would merely allow you to get to other trouble spots a few seconds sooner, or create a sea of cars moving in a slow straight line instead of a slow circle. A solution: use design and money to get more of those cars off the road (commuter rail, subway, bus).

Ugh. I am so glad I don't have to deal with the Rt. 2 commute anymore. The whole road from Leominster on is an absolute nightmare during rush hour(s). What we need is to widen the road, possibly extend into Fitchburg and also do SOMETHING with the Concord Rotary. What a mess!

MASS HIGHWAY has been studying the problem for years, and it will take years to fix. Just look at the Winter Street Project in Waltham, going on 11 years now, and still not done..
