"Let's concede the point that no feasibility studies have been done on von Tscharner's idea. No one knows the traffic impact, the number of police officers needed, or the compatibility of closures with the repair work.
But surely most motorists using Storrow Drive on Sunday mornings are going into, not out of the city, to church, perhaps, or brunch. With the eastbound lanes open, their travel won't be affected. The tunnel will be repaired at night, so closures should not interfere. At this quiet time of the week, overseeing the closures should not be too difficult for the police.
Our advice to DCR is simple: Do the study and, unless an insurmountable obstacle arises, give the closures a try."
