Quincy St Closed Three Days, New Underworld Entrance

Due to increased demand and extraordinary pedestrian traffic wanting a shortcut to the underworld, Skanska Construction under direction of Harvard Real Estate Services opened a new entrance on Quincy Street, Cambridge MA. This requires closing Quincy Street between Broadway and Harvard Street for three days during working hours. Quincy Street will be opened at about 5 PM each evening. Bus routes number 68, 69 are re-routed on Ellery Street arriving at Harvard Square via Harvard Street. The MBTA number one and Harvard's LMA number 2 buses to Boston go along Broadway instead of picking up on Quincy Street. They travel to Ellery Street and back track along Harvard Street to Quincy to pick up passengers going to Boston. This is reported to be in effect Monday March 12 to Wednesday March 14, 2012. Those wondering why so many want to go to hell may call HRES or the MBTA for their explanation. Images captured at about 4:30 PM Monday March 12, 2012.

Two smaller branch entrances to this one were opened on March 30, 2012 on Broadway less than one block from this one. See images at this link
