Braintree Split delays will last indefinitely
The Braintree Split is rarely any fun at rush hour, but it’s been especially sluggish lately for those coming from Route 128 South -- also known, naturally, as Interstate 93 North -- heading for Route 3 South. First, drivers going from Route 128 South onto Route 3 are being forced to merge into a single lane sooner, a reader notes. Then, once onto Route 3, drivers find the three southbound lanes have mysteriously narrowed and shifted to the right. Reader Sandra Perry asks if there is construction taking place from Route 128 South onto Route 3 that is causing the sluggish rush hour.
