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

Wednesday, March 21, 6:00 PM, Harvard Club of Boston, Aesculapian Room – 2nd Floor, 374 Commonwealth Avenue

The project team will discuss 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. A detour route map is posted on the project website. No parking will be allowed along the detour routes to maintain emergency access to area buildings and accommodate increased traffic volumes. View the flyer for more details.

Additionally, there will be a 19-day closure of the eastbound 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.

Local access and parking will be maintained at all times on Massachusetts Avenue. Local access will be maintained on the Commonwealth Avenue surface roads; however, parking will not be permitted because they are detour routes. Bicyclists and pedestrians will use the Charlesgate East and Hereford Street crossings during the four-day Massachusetts Avenue closure.

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.
