Traffic Information

MassDOT Resources
Longfellow Bridge

In the current construction phase, one lane of traffic carries vehicles into Boston (using the former Cambridge-bound lane), except on MBTA Red Line diversion weekends. For the duration of the project, all Cambridge-bound traffic is being detoured using a signed route from Charles Circle following Charles Street to Leverett Circle, Monsignor O’Brien Highway/Charles River Dam Road and Edwin H. Land Boulevard. To learn more please review the detour route map. An alternate detour route uses Storrow Drive westbound to the Massachusetts Avenue Bridge. Please note: Storrow Drive and Memorial Drive have truck restrictions.

Emergency response, bicycle and pedestrian access, and MBTA Red Line service will be maintained across the bridge during construction.

Anderson Memorial Bridge

The easterly sidewalk is closed and traffic has been reduced to one lane in each direction on the west side of the bridge. Pedestrians will need to use the westerly sidewalk and bicyclists will need to share the eastbound and westbound lanes.

During this phase, left turns from the bridge to Soldiers Field Road eastbound will continue to be allowed. The left hand turn restriction will also remain in place at Memorial Drive and JFK Street.
