All roads lead to -- Waltham?

WALTHAM

Two real estate developers are proposing to build a connector to Route 128, largely with private financing, to resolve a traffic bottleneck in Waltham, one of the state's hottest commercial real estate markets and home to many technology companies and other major employers, the Globe reports today.

Sam Park and Co., along with a neighboring developer, the Related Cos., would contribute $14 million toward construction of a four-lane bridge that would connect the highway and the Route 117 area in Waltham, where the two companies are each proposing to build large mixed-use real estate projects. There currently is no direct way to access Route 128 from the Route 117 area.
