Green Line ExtensionMassDOT’s Green Line Extension project continues to move forward with work beginning next week on Winchester Street in Medford.

On Monday, March 3rd, project Phase 1 Contractor, Barletta Heavy Division, Inc., will begin the reconstruction of the sewer laterals on Winchester Street and the new 30” drain line.

Winchester Street will become a one way street from Harvard Street south to Newbern Ave. During the week from 8AM to 4PM, Winchester Street will be closed to all traffic except local residents. After working hours, Winchester Street will be reopened to one way traffic.

During this construction, expected to last for approximately three months, two way traffic will be allowed on Wareham Street and Marion Street for residents only and closed to all general traffic. Detour signs will be posted.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation. This work is an important step in bringing the Green Line to Medford. Should you have any questions please feel free to contact the GLX Team at 855-GLX-INFO (459-4636) or visit http://greenlineextension.eot.state.ma.us/index.html.
