Since the look ahead covering the period of June 18th to July 6th, the project has:

  • Completed final paving for the entire project
  • Significantly advanced final pavement markings for the entire project
  • Advanced work in both the northern (towards Green Street) and southern (towards Roslindale Square) Forest Hills Station plaza.

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 has been installed and is subject to police enforcement.
