Update on the Boston bridge fire

While working through the motions of getting the Boston waves routed around the other side of the ring via DC, Level3 informed us that the outlook on the downtime isn't as bad as they initially expected. They're working toward routing their network across some diverse fiber, as well as trying to fix the fiber under the bridge. The prognosis is now on the order of hours, and not days. We're expecting to have partial or complete restoration in the next several hours.
