I still call it 128- do you?
On this day in 1951, the first segment of Route 128 opened. By 1956, the expressway stretched 65 miles from #Gloucester to #Braintree. The proximity to university labs and expanding suburban communities drew so many high tech companies to the area that Route 128 was dubbed "America's Technology Highway." While officials were confident the road would relieve traffic, they did not foresee that Route 128 would become a destination. #MassMoments http://ow.ly/3i7H50AwXL2
