Market Square progress

Sounds like things are really shaping up. I'm very excited about these changes, especially the closing of a problem bar and the addition of the wine and cheese bar.

My only concern is the bus route changes. While I think closing Market Square to traffic is a great idea in theory, I'm not sure it would work in practice. This isn't all traffic, just buses, but I wonder how it will work out. What will the ripple effects be when buses are rerouted? Will less people come to Market Square because their bus doesn't stop there? I guess we'll find out.

Has anyone been to a Dunkin Donuts lately? I have heard they've tweaked their format. Amazing that we're supposed to get 105 Dunkins!

I miss Dunkins. Haven't had it in years (most of the local ones closed around when Krispy Kreme came into the area). It's nice that they are opening new locations in the region. I always thought they had better donuts than Krispy Kreme.

Unlike last year's traffic experiment with the buses a permanent reroute would not just alter the Forbes buses around MSq, but would actually change their routing around downtown.

Nothing is final right now though.

I think Dunkin's donuts are better than Krispy Kreme's too... Krispy Kreme just exploded on the scene a few years ago... but they seem to have stalled (their accounting problems probably contributed to that)... Krispy's are just too sugary and goopy lol...

Yeah Krispy's donuts are all glazed, which is not to my taste.

But anyway, as for Market Square I'll be very interested to see what happens with the buses. Admittedly the square will be more pleasant without squeeling, puffing buses coming through all the time.
