CONCORD, Mass. --
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New England District announced today upcoming temporary lane closures on Riverway and Netherlands Road as dredging activities continue to progress on Phase 2 of the $36.5 million Muddy River Flood Risk Management project in Boston and Brookline, Massachusetts.
Temporary lane closures will take place Feb. 12, 2021, at Work Area #2 in the vicinity of Brookline Avenue and Riverway (near Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital), and at Work Area #3 on Netherlands Road. A one lane closure will be on Riverway, outbound from the Longwood Medical area, and on Netherlands Road to demobilize an excavator from Work Area #2 and mobilize it in Work Area #3. Appropriate signage will be placed on the outbound side starting at Netherlands and Riverway, and at Brookline Ave 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 to bring equipment and materials in for dredging operations. Dredging will begin in Work Area #3 later this month once the temporary construction fencing is installed, and the site preparation and mobilization is complete.
A State Police detail will be on-site to safely guide traffic around the vehicles loading and off-loading the equipment and materials. Lane closures will be limited to the greatest extent possible to minimize impacts to the public.
