I do not like the looks of those super-sharp granite curbs. I get that they stand up to Boston Winter, but they're going to tear bus tires' sidewalls open. Most BRT installations with raised curbs have either a low rub rail or smooth Kassel kerb/curb.

Rub Rail



Kassel Kerb (where the driver feels it riding up and can gracefully "drop away")

Talked with a construction worker at Harvard Square today who suggested that the lower busway could re-open as early as next week. Looking at the progress they've made over this most recent lower busway closure, it certainly seems possible.
