Traffic will be going slower on the Arborway, Jamaicaway and Riverway from Tuesday through Friday this week during the week due to tree maintenance.
The Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) will be conducting rolling lane closures going both directions from 9 am to 3 pm. Traffic changes will be marked, and a police detail will be on site, according to a press release from DCR.
Pond Street is getting a little bit of a sidewalk and curb facelift starting Nov. 28 and that means intermittent lane closures. From Nov. 28 through Dec. 7, but not the weekend, there will be lane closures along the outbound side of Pond Street between Burroughs Street and Jamaicaway from 7 am to 3 pm.
State Police confirm that a deer and car collided on the Jamaicaway early Sunday morning. The deer died. The incident took place about 2:10 a.m. at the intersection with Lochstead Avenue, State Police said. No humans were injured. @universalhub No pic for obvs reasons, but a car apparently struck and killed a deer on the J-way last night— αλκαλι (@alkali19) July 26, 2015
So I'm driving the Jway on Thursday around 4 p.m. and see two young men on scooters, one with a helmet cam. The cameraman rode behind as his buddy popped a wheelie and rode down several blocks of the Jway on his rear wheel. As a square 45-year-old, I was of course aghast. And that was before the guy with the camera took off his helmet to examine the video — while still riding along the Jway. Doing my own unsafe driving activity, I took two photos as I came alongside.
UPDATE: State Police have released the names of the people who died. ~~~~~
Two women are dead and another passenger is in critical condition after a BMW crossed the center line at Perkins and Jamaicaway, slamming head-on into a Camry. The wreck took place just before 3 a.m. Sunday, according to a report from State Police. The investigation so far indicates the driver of a 2007 BMW 530xi, Jennifer Guzman of Hyde Park, crossed the center line and struck a 2002 Toyota Camry. Two women in the BMW died.
