There have been more accidents in and around this new "safer" exit in the past year than I can remember over the previous 20.

You are absolutely correct Mr. Ward! The State of Massachusetts really needs to look and reevaluate the surroundings of where the work is being done and where it actually should be done. There definitely has been more than enough accidents since all this construction has been started! This has become a more dangerous intersection than it actually was before!
