MassDOT alerts:

Longfellow Bridge Reconstruction

In July 2013, MassDOT will begin a multi-year project to reconstruct the Longfellow Bridge.  While maintaining most subway, pedestrian, and bicycle access, there will be significant reductions on vehicle access and potentially slower travel speeds across the bridge to ensure safety during construction. 

For additional information on this project please see MADOT’s website at http://www.massdot.state.ma.us/charlesriverbridges/LongfellowBridge.aspx

 

MBTA Advisories:

Government Station Remodel

Beginning in September 2013, the Government Center T station will be closed for approximately 24 months for renovations.  The improvements will include new elevators, renovations to both the Green Line and Blue Line platforms, a new station entrance and lobbies, and will upgrade the station to comply with all current applicable code requirements. Service on the blue and green lines will continue during construction, however Government Station will be bypassed.  Passengers are asked to use nearby State Street, Park Street, and Bowdoin stations.  For additional information on the project see the MTBA’s website at http://www.mbta.com/about_the_mbta/t_projects/?id=1004

 

Yawkey Station Construction

Started in 2010, construction on the new Yawkey Commuter Rail Station in the Fenway will provide full-service to trains traveling along the Worcester/Framingham line.  The project is the central part of a major transit oriented development project on the air-rights over the MA Turnpike that will add more than 300,000 square feet of commercial space and hundreds of residential units.
