Completed to Braintree in 1956? I seem to recall that it ended at Rte 9 until the early 60s. I was commuting to Burlington at that time from the South Shore and it didn't turn into limited access highway until Rte. 9. Rte 128 itself went all the way to Nantasket, currently Rte 228 I believe.

I think you recall correctly

original Rt 128 in Braintree/Randolph was Blue Hill River Rd constructed mid-30's--now in pieces, some still in use, some derelict (like causeway off West St. in Braintree)

lots of good photos in this book:
