Phase 2 of the Muddy River project

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New England District has announced another upcoming temporary lane closure on Riverway as dredging activities continue to progress on Phase 2 of the $36.5 million Muddy River Flood Risk Management project in Boston and Brookline, Massachusetts.


According to the Corps, a temporary lane closure will take place Nov. 30, 2020, at Work Area #2 in the vicinity of Brookline Avenue and Riverway (near Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital).

The one lane closure will be on Riverway, outbound from the Longwood Medical area. Appropriate signage will be placed on the outbound side starting at Netherlands and Riverway, and at Brookline Ave and Riverway. The temporary lane closure will take place between 9 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. and last about 45 minutes, stated the Corps.

The temporary lane closures are necessary in order to bring equipment and materials in for dredging operations. Dredging will begin in Work Area #2 later this month once the temporary construction fencing is installed, and the site preparation and mobilization is complete.
