Throwback Thursday

If you grew up in Natick and moved out of the area, you might not recognize the intersection of Route 9 and Oak Street.  The jug handle turn is gone!

 The image is a screen capture from WHDH-TV 7's traffic camera facing West. Three lanes of traffic on each side of Route 9 with a left and right turn lane. The exit by the Scrub A Dub has been blocked off.

The new configuration was supposed to help the traffic jam on Route 9. It probably would work if the lights at McDonald's, Oak St. and Overbook Dr. were in sync.


  1. It was in the early days, but people seem to have the hang of it

  2. Ugh, I don't know this particular traffic nightmare but I sure don't miss the NY roads! :(
