    L Street Station Redevelopment (née Old Edison Plant)| 776 Summer Street | South Boston

    L Street Station Redevelopment (née Old Edison Plant)| 776 Summer Street | South Boston

    Beeline -- certainly looks like preparing the sidewalk for some demo activities -- possibly removal of the stack Assuming that those frames and decking were put up before the construction hiatus -- wonder if that will now happen This is a project -- not so far along that a major rethink might...

    The Hub on Causeway (née TD Garden Towers) | 80 Causeway Street | West End

    South Station Tower | South Station | Downtown

    I-90 Interchange Improvement Project & West Station | Allston

    Stick -- that 's a good idea I'd devote the next 2 months or so to building and connecting a temporary I-90 bypass so that when traffic picks-up the work on taking down the current viaduct could proceed with the traffic separated from the construction Let the Gov's Emergency Declaration and if...
