Description

There are no lane markings as Route 2 approaches the intersection of Route 16 and Fresh Pond Parkway. It's not clear if the right-hand lane can travel left or if it can only travel right. Many motorists bear left, squeezing into the lane that heads toward Route 16, which doesn't seem to be designed for 2 lanes of traffic, but there are no markings, so it's not clear how it's intended. The same applies to the left-hand lane. It can possibly travel straight, while someone in the right-hand lane tries to travel left, which would cause a crash. But custom doesn't seem to allow that. See photo for illustration.
