MassDOT will permanently close the off-ramp from Route 28 (McGrath Highway) Southbound to Somerville Avenue and will open a new at grade, signalized connection from Somerville Avenue/Medford Street to Route 28 (McGrath Highway) Northbound.
The existing tunnel from Somerville Avenue to Washington Street will be permanently closed.
The new configuration will be in effect starting Monday April 11, 2016.
Traffic will be re-routed as follows:
Route 28 Southbound traffic destined to Somerville Avenue should use the Washington Street off-ramp to Medford Street to access Somerville Avenue.
Medford Street and Somerville Avenue traffic destined to Route 28 Northbound or Washington Street will utilize the new at grade, signalized connection at the Somerville Avenue/Medford Street intersection.
The work is subject to cancellation without notice due to inclement weather.
The work is an interim improvement phase that is linked to the long term McGrath Boulevard Project.
When fully completed in the summer of 2016, this interim measure will provide increased pedestrian and bicycle access at both the Washington Street and Somerville Avenue intersections with McGrath Highway.
