CONCORD, Mass. – Construction activities continue on Phase 1 of the $30.9 million Muddy River Flood Risk Management and Environmental Restoration project in Boston, Massachusetts. On Saturday, June 11, the traffic signals at the intersection of Brookline Avenue, Boylston Street, and Park Drive will be temporarily flashing or shut-down in order to activate the new traffic control cabinet for this intersection. The new traffic control cabinet has already been installed in the former Sears Parking Lot but requires wiring and programming to the traffic signals. In order to avoid impact to vehicular and pedestrian traffic flow during a weekday, this activation is being implemented on a weekend when traffic is lighter. The expected duration of the work is approximately 6 hours before all the traffic signals are back on line.

Details concerning this weekend work are as follows:

•Work to start on June 11
•Hours will be from 7am to 1pm
•Police detail will be provided for the duration of this work to direct traffic

This activity is necessary in order to provide full functionality of the signals and traffic circulation for Brookline Avenue and left turn onto Park Drive from Brookline Avenue. We will do all we can to minimize impacts to the public during this work.
