Magazine Street Ped Bridge Ramp MassDOT this month will begin demolition work as part of the Magazine Beach Pedestrian Bridge Replacement Project in Cambridge.

The pedestrian bridge will be closed on Thursday, September 9, at 8 AM. Pedestrians crossing Memorial Drive at the Magazine Street intersection will use the new signalized crosswalk with push buttons.  Demolition of the Pedestrian Bridge approach ramps is scheduled to begin next Monday, September 13.   Night work required for the removal of the midspan of the bridge over Memorial Drive is scheduled for the last week of September. 
 
The pedestrian bridge replacement is funded by the Patrick-Murray Administration’s $3 billion Accelerated Bridge Program. The project will replace the existing pedestrian bridge over Memorial Drive with a new structure that includes accessible ramps and handrails. The project also includes installation of an over height detection system and temporary signals as well as site restoration. Completion is scheduled for spring 2011.

For more information please contact Stephanie Boundy, (617) 973-8049 or through project feedback e-mail at: dot.feedback.highway@state.ma.us.
