State toils to fix gaps attributed to neglect
“The surface of Interstate 93 ruptured here yesterday for the second day in a row, creating a gash large enough to swallow a car and snarling traffic for miles while the state performed emergency repairs that officials said will have the road open for this morning’s commute.
Engineers were forced to close three of four northbound lanes, causing tens of thousands of motorists to idle on the traffic-snarled interstate or scramble for alternate routes. Traffic was backed up from Medford to the Leonard P. Zakim Bunker Hill Bridge, meaning that it took an hour or more to travel a 5-mile stretch that ordinarily takes just a few minutes to drive.”
