Question Of The Day: Smith And Clinton Traffic Insanity

In an email to PMFA, reader Justin S. writes:
"I have been noticing in the past few days that traffic on both Smith and Clinton Streets is backed up for miles. Does anyone have any idea why?"

I was wondering the same thing. My husband and I were stuck on Smith Street over the week-end. Traffic was insane. I have not seen it like that in a very long time.
