Traffic from H-E-double hockey sticks

NEWTON

Traffic from Hell.

That is the fear of many people when they hear about the impending repaving work on Route 9, which is scheduled for next spring. To get a sense of the impact, the Chestnut Hill Alliance, a citizens group for both Newton and Brookline residents, has invited MassHighway to talk about it.

The meeting will take place on Nov. 29, 7 p.m. at the Municipal Service Center, 870 Hammond Street, Brookline. Alliance co-founder and chairman Anthony Andreadis said the meeting is also a warmup for the group's next challenge, Chestnut Hill Square, the proposed Steve Karp development planned for Route 9 near the Newton-Brookline border.

The state representatives will also discuss landscaping planned from Hammond Street to Hammond Pond Parkway, Andreadis said.
