The 'way was supposed to be all open today, with the closure west of Bedford Street re-opened and closure at Bow Street not starting 'til tomorrow. I took full advantage and made my first visit of the year to the Bedford end. Along the way I admired the many drainage improvements, toured the revised crossing of Westview, and saw a surprising number of road-killed frogs. For no reason I could think of, there were three dead frogs in a hundred yards or so behind the Waldorf School in Lexington.
Contrary to the announcement, Lexington DPW workers had already posted (but weren't enforcing) the closure near Bow Street by 8:30 this morning.
