Muddy River FRM project to cause temporary lane closures April 2

USACE, New England District
Published March 30, 2021

 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 on April 2, 2021, at Work Area #3 on Netherlands Road and at Work Area #2 in the vicinity of Brookline Avenue and Riverway (near Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital). A single lane closure will be on Netherlands Road and on Riverway, outbound from the Longwood Medical Center, to demobilize an excavator from Work Area #3 and mobilize it in Work Area #2. Appropriate signage will be placed on the outbound side starting at Netherlands and Riverway, and at Brookline Ave and Riverway. The temporary lane closures 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 into Work Area #2 to remove the temporary sediment storage bin in preparation of restoration work. Plantings and restoration will begin in Work Area #2 in early May to coincide with the Spring planting window.

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.
