Little gives me as much pleasure as watching a cop stop people using the shoulder to get around stopped traffic.

Heh.  True.

How many sets of eyes do you suppose were complicit in letting this through?

Not to mention that 107 and 114 are state routes not US routes

That was my point.

Does someone mis-order, then nobody wants to rock the boat and put in a change that delay the final payment to the contractor?

--- End quote ---

There are emergency pulloffs about every Ĺ mile in the locations with rush hour breakdown lane use.

What if you can't make it 1/2 miles?

--- End quote ---

From experience, if you lose all power while driving in free-flowing traffic at speed itís going to take you a while to coast over to a stop. 1/2 mile is not that much in that case.

If you break down in stopped or slow traffic you probably werenít going to make it to the shoulder anyway.

kramie13:
Is there a reason why MA 129 is concurrent with US 1 in Saugus and Lynnfield?  It seems rather unnecessary.  Wouldn't it make more sense for that route to continue following Walnut St and Linwood Rd into Lynn, and rejoining its current alignment where it intersects MA 107?

Or another option, MA 129 doesn't turn right onto Main St in Wakefield, continuing to follow Lowell St and Salem St into Lynnfield, and rejoining its current alignment near where US-1 and I-95/MA 128 intersect in that area.

I'm sure this would clear up some confusion as far as route numbers go in that area.
