the past few months, ostensibly as part of the ongoing minor upgrades
associated with the Assembly Square redevelopment plan.
One was the sign for Sullivan Square topped with a "BOSTON VIA" tab.
I recall reading years ago that this tab first came about when I-93's
double-deck structure remained unfinished in the 1970s and southbound
traffic needed to exit to reach downtown.
While it's true that the last segment of I-93 came late and slow, I
don't know if there's any truth to this now-historical sign's origin,
or if the story is apocryphal. Anyone know?
