North Washington Street BridgeAs part of the North Washington Street Bridge Project, the Paul Revere Park Playground and Tudor Wharf Walkway will be closed during the daytime for approximately two weeks in order to assist in construction of the temporary bridge.

The Walkway and Playground are scheduled to close for two weeks beginning on Thursday, March 14, 7am-3pm daily. MassDOT’s contractor for replacement of the North Washington Street Bridge, JF White will begin driving piles to support the temporary bridge in the area near the Paul Revere Park Playground.

Pedestrian access will be maintained via the Water Street underpass, with directional signage in place to guide people along the detour.

Paul Revere Park will remain open and accessible except for the playground area. Nearby playgrounds include North Point Park near EF Education First, the Charlestown Naval Shipyard Park Playground in the Navy Yard at 6th Street, Thomas Menino Park at the Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital.
