It's not likely to be red very often/at all at PM rush, the only reason it would be turning red at that hour is a Fedex truck or two coming up from South Boston back into their facility.Yes lights have already been installed, just not active yet. Begs the question of whether this is really going to improve traffic on Summer Street. Traffic backs up onto the bridge at the PM rush hour and now you are putting a 2nd light in. Should be interesting.
If we're concerned about pollution, maybe Conley Terminal should buy a few of the electric trucks being used in California and get some experience to determine whether batteries are as good as diesel?The news that the project could begin as soon as next spring was a welcome update to residents who have long endured the noise, pollution, and safety concerns associated with the trucks that run through the dense neighborhood.
Those trucks in the link are yard tugs, which are not street legal and have very different power requirements because max speed is ~<10mph
I thought we were done with "doghouses?"
