Effective Sunday, December 5, 2010, MassDOT will reopen the two inbound travel lanes on Route 28 southbound at the intersection of Land Boulevard. The inbound lanes were closed on November 6 during Phase I of the Craigie Drawbridge Rehabilitation Project and will reopen one month later on Sunday, in keeping with the original schedule. The southbound lane closure will be reinstated in early 2011 in order to complete the final phase of this project.
“I want to commend MassDOT staff, Boston, Cambridge and Somerville officials and state and local police for working to avoid any major traffic problems associated with the work on the Craigie Drawbridge,” said MassDOT Highway Administrator Luisa Paiewonsky. “As we prepare for the next phase of construction we will continue to work cooperatively to make sure this important project inconveniences the driving public as little as possible.”
The Craigie Drawbridge carries McGrath O’Brien Highway (Route 28) between Land Blvd. in Cambridge and Leverett Circle in Boston. Visit the Craigie Drawbridge Rehabilitation project on the web for more information.
Bike and pedestrian access in each direction will be maintained during construction. As a result of the construction activities, the Charles River Channel will be closed to all marine traffic reopening no later than April 27, 2010.
