Upcoming Work

3-Week Look-Ahead: April 16th to May 4th

The only exception to this is the westbound left turn at Arborway/Washington Street which is available to general purpose traffic as directed by the electric sign mounted on the signal controlling the Arborway westbound approach. Drivers of private cars using this left turn when the approach is signed for buses only may be subject to fines and assigned moving violations.
