Traffic Alert on Proctor Street

Building Salem reports that “As part the ongoing utility improvement project on Proctor Street, traffic detour will be established in the area to allow work on Proctor Street at Pope Street.” This is not a single day event, but will be happening intermittently over the next several weeks as the construction proceeds. As if Proctor St didn’t already face a big enough traffic snarl, as reported in the previous post. The detour proposed by Building Salem is Rube Goldberg in its complexity, taking motorists by too many streets in Witchcraft Heights. Better to just follow Route 107 around the Boston St / Essex St corner.
