New announcement playing on the trains stating "During the Beverly Drawbridge construction use of the Salem Parking Garage is strongly discouraged due to congestion. Salam police will be enforcing all parking regulations."

Also, there is another one I heard earlier this week about bus during the drawbridge construction and PTC but the audio is so low compared to stop announcements you can only catch bits and pieces of it.

First 2 days underway of the shut down.

The MBTA was bing nice to us on the Eastern tonight and handing out free bottled waters to all passengers who wanted one tonight when boarding at North Station.

Peoples first thoughts were "Does this mean the Air Conditioning isn't working?" as I heard asked several times. The MBTA staff just simply responded that the MBTA wanted to be "nice".

WCVB had a neat video taken via helicopter last night of the crane assembled over the drawbridge. Haven't seen it online anywhere, but if I find it I'll post it.

Wondering if I'll see the Haverhill double-tracking finished before I retire...

Looks like they are using this time of closure to do a lot tree work. Not just brush hogging but taking down whole trees along the tracks.

Also, what are the telephone poles for they are adding. Is that for PTC or WiFI?
