Traffic Back To 2019 Levels In Massachusetts

Traffic is back to its pre-pandemic levels, a Massachusetts Department of Transportation employee told CBS Boston on Monday.

“Traffic, for all intents and purposes, is back to about 2019 levels on most roadways in Massachusetts at this point,” Highway Administrator Jonathan Gulliver said, according to CBS Boston. “We are certainly seeing a return to a lot of previous travel times.”
