^ Congratulations to all involved!

Why does the work at the switch to Washington St / Cobble Hill bypass track (Yard 10 lead?) Seem to be on such an irregular schedule (big machines alongside deep trench, sitting idle for weeklong stretches)?

How old are the "concrete Lincoln logs" stacked retaining walls alongside the LL in Somerville. As construction disturbs the trashy slopes, the stacked retaining walls are looking a little too lacy and delicate. What's the plan?
