Upcoming Work

3-Week Look-Ahead: June 18th to July 6th

Since the look ahead covering the period of May 28th to June 15th, the project has:

  • Adjusted utility frames and covers project-wide in preparation for final paving of the entire project;
  • Begun installation of final pavement for the Arborway west (towards the Arboretum)
  • Advanced work in both the northern (towards Green Street) and southern (towards Roslindale Square) Forest Hills Station plaza;
  • Continued construction of bicycle and pedestrian facilities project wide;
  • Continue finalization of signal operations project wide; and
  • Continued installation of structural components for the new upper busway canopy.

Motorists are reminded that eastbound (towards Franklin) and westbound (towards the Arboretum) left turns off the Arborway at the intersections of South Street/Arborway and Washington Street/Arborway are now permanently prohibited. These movements will now be permanently handled by the eastern and western median U-turns. 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. Additional warning signage addressing this issue will be installed during the course of this 3-week look ahead and subject to police enforcement.

Work will not take place on Wednesday, July 4th in recognition of Independence Day.

Nighttime final paving operations are now underway and will continue throughout the three-week period covered by this look ahead. Night work will begin at 8PM with all lanes returned to normal use by 5AM the following morning.
