That proposal makes so much more sense than the current configuration where I-93 continues past Braintree out to Canton.
How long would it take traffic reporters to adjust to this new reality? Couple of days? There would be so much publicity about such a change that the public would be way ahead of them. Then, to reference I-193, it would be clear exactly what piece of road they were speaking.
Maybe, then the MA 3 name from Boston to Sagamore could finally be retired. I doubt if anyone follows 3 approaching Boston to its end at the BU bridge, where US 3 starts. Or just extend US 3 over the former MA 3 route to where it joins I-93. I literally cannot remember where it does that.
