mass-ave-bridge-project-graphic-2018MassDOT has scheduled a Public Information Meeting on Phase 3 of the Massachusetts Avenue Bridge Replacement Project as follows:

Wednesday, April 25, 6:00 PM, Harvard Club of Boston, Estabrooks Room – 3rd Floor, 374 Commonwealth Avenue

At this meeting, the project team will discuss final preparations, including construction and traffic management plans, for Phase 3 of the project when the Massachusetts Avenue Bridge over the Commonwealth Avenue bypass roadways is replaced. The full replacement requires closing Massachusetts Avenue to all modes of travel from 10:00 PM on Thursday, May 10, to 5:00 AM on Tuesday, May 15. Vehicle traffic on Massachusetts Avenue will be detoured during this time frame. Local access to businesses and residences on Massachusetts Avenue and Commonwealth Avenue will be maintained. A detour route map is posted on the project website. No parking will be allowed along the detour routes, including Commonwealth Avenue, to maintain emergency access to area buildings and accommodate increased traffic volumes; however, parking will be allowed on Massachusetts Avenue. View the no parking flyer for more details. Bicyclists and pedestrians will use the Charlesgate East and Hereford Street crossings during the closure. MBTA bus service for Routes 1 and CT1 may be delayed due to the detour. Some bus stops within the project area will be closed or relocated. View the bus stop flyer for details.

Additionally, there will be a 19-day closure of the east and westbound Commonwealth Avenue bypass roadways under the bridge from Saturday, May 5, through Wednesday, May 23. The closures are necessary for the contractor to have access to the bridge substructure to prepare for and complete the full bridge replacement.

For more information about the meeting or to request accommodations, please contact Jim Kersten, 857-368-9041 or James.A.Kersten@dot.state.ma.us.
