Commonwealth Avenue Bridge Replacement

MassDOT will be replacing the section of the Commonwealth Avenue Bridge that runs above I-90 Wednesday, July 26 through Monday, August 14.

This event will have significant impact on patients and visitors commuting to the hospital, particularly from the North and West. We would encourage all families to please allow for additional travel time when planning your visit.

During this 18-day period, Commonwealth Avenue will be closed between Brighton Avenue and Kenmore Square, seriously impacting travel for I-90/Mass Pike, the BU Bridge and Commonwealth Ave. In addition, detours caused by this project will impact Kenmore Square, Beacon Street, Park Drive, Mass Avenue, Storrow Drive, Soldiers Field Road, and Memorial Drive.

For the most up to date information on this project, including areas impacted, detours, and suggestions for LMA commuting, please visit the  MassDOT site and on the MASCO site.
