Weekend (and Week Ahead) Construction Notes - July 22nd

There's a lot of closures, bus replacements, and other going on this weekend and next week.  Here's what impacts Cambridge:

1.  Longfellow Bridge:  This weekend will see a motor vehicle closure from 11:00 PM tonight (Fri 7/22) to 4:00 PM tomorrow (Sat 7/23).  During this time, only motor vehicles will be barred - Red Line, bike, and pedestrian access maintained.

Next week, the bridge will also close to motor vehicles only from 11:00 PM to 5:00 AM nightly, Sunday-Friday, 7/24-7/29.

More info from MassDOT here.

2. A contractor will be resurfacing First Street in East Cambridge next week, Monday 7/25 to Wednesday 7/27.  Work will be concentrated on the northbound side of the street, as remediation for the Eversource utility work done on the street over the last year.  Work may extend into Thursday in the event of rain (they can't pave if it's raining!). For info, visit Cambridge DPW.

Note: EZRide Shuttle will be impacted by this, but we will attempt to operate on route as much as possible.  At times shuttles may be diverted to Second Street - please check NextBus alert messages and/or Twitter for updates!


Moving a little further afield, there's a couple bus replacements in store this weekend on the MBTA:

1. Red Line - full closure with buses replacing trains between Quincy Center and Braintree.  Saturday 7/23 and Sunday 7/24, all day, both days.  This will also repeat the weekend of 8/6-8/7.  See T Alerts.

2. Lowell Line (Commuter Rail) - Shuttle buses will replace trains between Wilmington and Lowell Stations this Saturday and Sunday, 7/23 and 7/24.  See commuter rail updates for more info on replacement shuttles.
