"Tufts interlocking" update:

Looking inbound from the future College Ave station/bridge at 4pm Saturday, it looks like the subsoil is all graded and the ballast is half laid (it reaches about 3/4 of the way to College Ave from the Harvard Ave "slot shift" (and new signal mast) , which is about half of the total project distance.
