the connector, the only thing it does is connect drivers money to the state and city, all in the name of public safety. Watch the details when it's near quitting time, talk about speed but they know that they won't get a ticket so it's on the cell phone and the gas pedal

"Unfortunately things like this can get caught up in bureaucracy," Panagiotakos said Wednesday. "But we persevered and got it done."

Ah Mass politics, hey it took 47 years, but we persevered and got 2 signs put up.
Congrats, no wonder we're as screwed up in this state as we are......
By the way, if the connector was renamed as part of the stimulus "shovel ready" projects how quickly would those signs have been put up?

The original name for the road is "Interstate 495 Business Spur". There is a sign on Plain St.
