I’d guess helicopters (like other aircraft) have no special rights until they are 1000’ up. Anyone know?
I can't answer your question for sure, but I know for a fact that consumer drones/UAVs are legally restricted to flying under 400' due to concerns about interfering with helicopter or plane traffic, so any special rights for helicopters or planes would seemingly begin at 400'.I’d guess helicopters (like other aircraft) have no special rights until they are 1000’ up. Anyone know?
I was just thinking the same thing. It seems those meetings are the only way to get updates--albeit a month delayed once they post the minutes of the previous meeting. It was a good way to keep the pressure on them to answer the questions that seem to have received shifting answers every month:Does anybody know if the monthly GLX Community Working Group is done? They haven’t held one since November and none have been scheduled. Kinda funny they celebrated 48 months of consecutive meetings at the November one, then canceled the December one and apparently aren’t having more meetings.
IT looks like a Chicago elevated line. Chicago has done a good job of rehabbing and modernizing it's elevated rail lines and stations.This photo's from June, but I could be convinced this picture could be out of Chicago if I only had a quick glance at it... MT and One Beacon are clear giveaways though...

Good find. Thanks! Once again, Gilman Square will be the weakest link in this chain. This latest report has Gilman as the only station with "an extensive amount of construction" left to do. Despite Medford St Bridge looking like it will reopen soon, this report says it will be "in the next few months" which is discouragingly vague.They did finally update the construction updates page today: https://www.mass.gov/info-details/glx-construction-activities-and-traffic-updates
