There’s little question N2 Corridor businesses will be celebrating the (half) opening of the I-95 Kendrick Street exit. Needham officials are patting themselves on the back, but Newton officials sat quietly through meetings when the plans were approved a decade ago. Will this be a disaster for Newton? I’ve shared my thoughts on this before. I sincerely hope I’m wrong.
On the plus side, the add-a-lane project reluctantly added a few more lanes: there are now green bicycle lanes across the Kendrick exits, thanks to local activists, making the best of a bad situation for cyclists.
