MassDOT’s contractor for the reconstruction of Massachusetts Avenue in Arlington will begin initial steps for the project during the week of May 27, 2014. Early operations will include the installation of construction signs, erosion control measures, protection for trees, and drainage work. There will be no impact on sidewalks or peak-hour traffic.
