The Subaru retailers of New England all wheel drive traffic on the threes. Where would you like to take us, Michael? Well, we've got troubles up to the North Here Band. This is 1 28 south down, just backed up a few miles through Lexington. It's a crash, not a serious one. But it is their southbound after route to be a little closer to Winter Street, neither way it is backed up there. North beyond delays getting up towards that scene, of course, and then 1 28 north is backed up getting by 93 about a mile there and 1 28 south. Bad as usual Route 35 in Danvers into Peabody delays a 93 north start on the upper deck and reach up into Medford. This is about 15 minutes. Hold up for you. And then more delays conquered straight up pass through 1 25 in Wilmington. No surprise there. Delays on 4 95 north, as usual, coming up passed through three and the local connector. The southbound Express way up Looks like a Friday. Here. It's all brake lights from the tunnel to South Bay, then granted AV to route 24 Northwest. Bad coming in from Braintree of past Neponset Circle and really slow coming up towards the tunnel to Route three. South is tough most of the way down a Derby Street. Over a mile Wait for the Sagamore Bridge. Same at the born but it's after Labor Day. I don't get it over a mile on 28 sandwich Road into the born rotary too. So busy at the cape. Alright, 95 North is locked up a mile up towards 1 28 downtown, the lower decks already back to Sullivan Square store.
