4. Comment of the day. As we reported, the Charlestown Neighborhood Council hosted the latest Rutherford Avenue/Sullivan Square meeting on Wednesday night, joined by officials from the Boston Transportation Department and consultants from Tetra Tech. Patch reader Dan offered the following comment on our preview of the meeting: “Sorry to say nothing really changed. The so called change was something we had seen before, Austin St. over pass is now locked in Vs a surface design. This design was shown at the last meeting and most people at that meeting agreed it was better than the surface option.”
5. Sun. Today’s forecast calls for sun in the morning with clouds moving in later in the day. Highs should get up to about 66 degrees, with a slight chance of showers, according to Weather.com. After dark, temps will fall to around 47 degrees with a 20 percent chance of rain.
