MA 3 is an expressway, varying in configuration between 4-lane divided to 4-lane undivided, along the north shore of the Charles River in Cambridge. Most of the route is within the MIT campus. There are some substandard features along the highway such as on-street parking and unsignalized pedestrian crossings. However, the only driveway is the MIT president’s house and nearly all of the at-grades, only three of which are signalized, have left-turn restrictions.
