Literally the only time I have ever experienced continuous speed limit travel on the old Artery was during changeover weekend in 2003 on the last 24 hours the temp SB alignment was open before shifting underground. Also at 1:00am...after we'd been forewarned all month to stay the hell away from Downtown for that weekend.I remember coming back from my cousins house on the South Shore at 1am and being in a non moving traffic jam. At 1am.
During my time at BLS a teacher once stated that Avenue Louis Pasteur was meant to be a proper French avenue with an island all the way town the length of it, but one of the buildings was built encroaching on the potential street so they had to make it a regular two way with that awkward circle at the end. I never had any reason to doubt him but I am curious if that was actually the case.Longwood like you've never seen it.

Most of the buildings here are gone, particularly to the right of the train tracks. Common knowledge to most here, I'm sure, but it never fails to blow my mind.
