I'd post the Simpsons clip, but forget it. Why can't this stupid mode freaking die?The DC area is considering a monorail along part of I-270 (see https://www.fredericknewspost.com/news/politics_and_government/transportation/i--monorail-proposal-gathers-speed/article_a93df92b-6125-5b1a-b4c5-1a114e476a3d.html).
So. how about a monorail along I-95/128 linking Anderson Station in Woburn with the Green Line Riverside station. Also move the Auburndale CR station closer to I-95 to line up with the monorail route, creating a multi-modal transit complex at the Riverside/relocated Auburndale/monorail juncture. Monorail stations would be located at the Burlington Mall area (for TOD), and spaced along the rest of the route. Minimal ROW would be needed as the elevated monorail would straddle the shoulder of the expressway roadway on the existing cut and fill slopes.
If you ever want to build a monorail, what you're saying is that you might need BRT or HRT, but you're an idiot.
