Memorial Drive Westbound Overnight Closure Extended - Monday, February 10th - Friday, February 14th.
Memorial Drive Westbound Overnight Closure Extended – Monday, February 10 through Friday, February 14
Memorial Drive westbound under the Longfellow Bridge will close overnight on Monday, February 10 through Friday, February 14. A single lane closure will be implemented beginning at 9:00 PM each night and the full closure will begin at 11:00 PM. The roadway will reopen to traffic at 5:00 AM each morning.
The closure is to assist the Massachusetts Department of Transportation with its ongoing Longfellow Bridge Rehabilitation Project, and is necessary to accommodate demolition of the bridge span over Memorial Drive westbound.
Vehicular traffic will be detoured using the alternate routes of Land Boulevard to Binney Street and Third Street or the ramp from Land Boulevard to Main Street.
Bicycles and pedestrians will be diverted to the eastbound side of Memorial Drive to pass under the bridge.
