Good luck to Boxborough


A slots parlor, too, would surely have economic benefits for Danvers and for the region, but would come with a far-steeper price — year-round inconvenience on a much grander scale. With no train station in Danvers, it’s reasonable to assume that millions more drivers would clog roads like Route 128 that already struggle to handle the existing traffic volume.

It’s still possible The Cordish Companies could come courting here. They say they’ve not excluded any options yet, as they wait to see how Boxborough reacts. But in the meantime, we won’t be shedding any tears over Danvers’ loss.
