Just when we’d mastered the pronunciation of “Roxburyry” . . .

An anonymous source reports that “Roxburyry St.” is no more –it’s now “Roxbury” again.  There’s a great big gap between the “y” and “S”, which tells you that they merely removed two letters.

I would normally take this opportunity to congratulate the DPW&P for correcting their error in less than two months.  But simply removing two letters still leaves us with a street sign whose letters are too short to meet MUTCD requirements. (4.75 inches instead of 6 inches.)

Unfortunately, it would take a power greater than this blog to make that happen.

  1. We should start a group to save ‘Roxburyry Street’, PRONTO!
