MegaIntersection pictures

The following pictures are taken from central campus, at the south end of the BU Bridge. At this spot, 3 lanes of Route 2 coming from the BU Bridge cross 6 lanes of Commonwealth Avenue (and the 2-track Green Line B Branch) - all on a giant elevated structure, under which are 6 lanes of I-90 (the Mass Pike) and the 2-track Framingham/Worcester Line. It's downright impressive engineering.

Looking north, from Comm Ave towards the BU Bridge (with the Grand Junction Railroad and Storrow Drive underneath) with I-90 in the foreground:

A closer view, again through the chain-link fence:

As always, click to embiggen. I may upload these images to Wikimedia Commons under the username Pi.1415926535, and all these images are free use anyway.
