Orange Line stops, Mass. Ave. shut when woman gets very sick on platform

Around 11:20 a.m., police shut the Mass. Ave. Orange Line stop, stopped train service and blocked traffic on Mass. Ave. after somebody started vomiting on the platform. The station and street were re-opened about 15 minutes later - and the person transported to a local hospital - after first responders determined she did not have Ebola. Boston EMS Incidents reports EMTs rushed to the station on a report of "an external hemorrhage."

Yes, there was a good reason crews were repaving a South End street at 7:30 a.m. on a Saturday

In response to a citizen complaint about loud street work on Appleton Street at 7:30 a.m. this past Saturday, Mark Cardarelli, supervisor of utility coordination and compliance at the DPW writes: The Public Works Department is resurfacing Appleton St. Appleton was in disparate need of resurfacing, this is a plus for the residents. The street was posted 2 days in advance as required. Because the construction season ends November 15th every day left is critical. That's why they were working on the 11th. The work should be completed in the next week or so. The city apologizes for the inconvenience this necessary work caused.
