Muddy River Flood Risk Management project to cause temporary Riverway lane closure Dec. 7

USACE, New England District
Published Dec. 3, 2020

 The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New England District announced today another temporary lane closure on Riverway as dredging activities continue to progress on Phase 2 of the $36.5 million Muddy River Flood Risk Management project in Boston and Brookline,

A temporary lane closure will take place Dec. 7, 2020, at Work Area #2 in the vicinity of Brookline Avenue and Riverway (near Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital). The one lane closure will be on Riverway, outbound from the Longwood Medical area. Appropriate signage will be placed on the outbound side starting at Netherlands and Riverway, and also at Brookline and Riverway. The temporary lane closure will take place between 9 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. and last
about 45 minutes.

The temporary lane closures are necessary in order to bring equipment and materials in for dredging operations. Dredging will begin in Work Area #2 later this month once the site preparation and mobilization is complete.

A State Police detail will be on-site to safely guide traffic around the vehicles off-loading the equipment and materials. Lane closures will be limited to the greatest extent possible to minimize impacts to the public.
