Boston On Lockdown Due To Police Activity

Much of the city of Boston is inaccessible today as a result of police activity related to this week's Boston Marathon bombing.  Many areas are closed to the public and reports indicate taxi service across the city has been suspended.  Public and other transportation delays should be expected.  Travelers are advised to monitor local media and stay abreast of quickly changing conditions.
