Comm Ave Replacement

What's New

On August 11, Commonwealth Avenue, the BU Bridge, the MBTA Green B Line, and CT2 and 47 bus routes resumed normal operations. Construction crews successfully demolished the Commonwealth Avenue westbound portion of the old bridge deck and installed the new bridge deck.

Through August 2018, off-peak and overnight lane closures on Commonwealth Avenue and I-90 in the vicinity of the bridge are necessary for crews to carry out finishing work. The work includes completing sidewalks, final pavement, markings and signal adjustments, finishing concrete/parapet walls, and other minor remaining incidental items.
