MassDOT has cancelled the MBTA Red Line diversion and Longfellow Bridge closure scheduled for Friday, January 29 through Sunday, January 31.
The remaining work will be completed during a series of night shifts instead of during a weekend diversion.
The Longfellow Bridge will remain open to one lane of Boston-bound vehicles at all times this weekend, and Red Line trains will provide service during typical hours. Bicycles and pedestrians will continue to use the current travel configuration to cross the bridge.
The Cambridge-bound detour remains in place using a signed route from Charles Circle following Charles Street to Leverett Circle, Monsignor O’Brien Highway/Charles River Dam Road, and Edwin H. Land Boulevard.
