The historic traffic cones along the Freedom Trail

NorthEndWaterfront.com reports on an innovative city program: Cut down dead trees on Hanover Street, wait a few months, then remove the stumps and replace them with traffic cones:

Of course, the cone gets toppled, perhaps by someone tripping in the hole. This “sidewalk pothole” has existed for so many months it will soon gain historic protection status.

Save the cones!

If only we'd had the foresight to preserve their predecessors, the oil pots, think how much richer our children's sense of history would be!

Good news

I just walked by there and it looks like they have fixed the problem by adding 3 more cones.
