Bowker OverpassMotorists are urged to plan ahead on Saturday, August 9 as MassDOT construction work on the Bowker Overpass will require ramp closures and detour.

On Saturday, August 9, the Storrow Drive Eastbound, Fenway Route 1 South off ramp will be closed from the hours of 7 AM to 11 PM.

A traffic detour will be in place, directing cars to the previous Kenmore exit along Storrow Drive Eastbound. There will be signage, and police details to guide motorists to exit at the Kenmore off-ramp. Work will also require a right lane closure along Beacon Street where access to the sidewalk and bike path will be closed, and traffic will be maintained in the center and left lane.

The scheduled work consists of demolition of deck surface along the Bowker Overpass. Rapid set concrete will then be installed and finished to match existing grade of bridge deck. Upon completion of recommended curing, traffic will be opened.

MassDOT encourages drivers to avoid the area and seek alternate routes to minimize delays. Those traveling through the area should expect delays and should reduce speed and use caution while traveling along the detour routes.
