MFN fiber cut (Boston)?

I've been hearing things from various different folks around the Net
(Hosting.com/ALGX) about a fiber cut in Boston yesterday (which may or may not
be related to some kind of issue with an MFN/Above.net gateway - traces die
at 208.185.139.1).

Unfortunately, that is about as much information as I have, and I thought it
odd that I hadn't heard anything here about it already (Sean is usually
quicker on the fiber news than any other media outlet I know of :)).

Anybody else have details, or am I hallucinating again?

A contractor working on the "Big Dig" severed fiber conduit(s) in
South Boston early yesterday. News was sparse, and ALGX appeared to be
the only large data network casualty. Repairs were complete well before
the end of the business day.
