Naughty No. 9

NEWTON

Itís stall and crawl on on the east side of Route 9 just before the Chestnut Hill Mall, but only at night.

The traffic is caused by the city upgrading a water main under the busy highway. Jeremy Solomon, city spokesman, said the work is to improve the flow of water for firefighting because of development in the area, particularly the new Avalon Bay apartments.

Crews are authorized to work only between 7 pm and 5 am. The job should be finished in about a month, Solomon said.
