At Medford/Tufts they are drilling (earth auger-ing) this weekend for the piles that will hold back (the hillside of) Boston Ave.

Actually they may be doing this weekdays too since they build themselves a sort of earthen ledge that they can work from and let the CR run past.

The augur was active at the Washington street bridge this morning. (I watch the construction with my toddler most mornings while we wait for the bus).
yea I live near the Washington st. underpass and bring my 14 month old down to watch the machinery, he loves it.
