Drive Time Traffic Nightmare

by Bobby Blair
December 17, 2013

It is slippery out there and the evening commuter traffic is backed up on Route 16 way back into Sherborn. Holliston Police  made safe passage for a plow/sand truck to traverse Phipps Hill at 5:38 p.m. where vehicles were having a hard time on the hill.

Commuters were also reported to be off the road near BFI Corp. 123 Washington Street while others tried to navigate around them causing further delays. The ambulance was called out to Old Town Rd. at 5:47 p.m. The ambulance reported a disabled vehicle at the corner of Old Town Rd. and Washington Street.

Updated: 6:17 p.m. several cars stuck on Phipps Hill

Sorry, Bobby. I've forgotten where Phipps Hill is. Can you remind us? The snow has prompted our family to start a pool for the date the first car runs up on the Norfolk St. traffic island. It's inevitable...but fortunately tends to be more embarrassing more than hazardous.
