The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New England District has announced upcoming lane closures on Riverway and Netherlands Road 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, temporary lane closures will take place Feb. 12, 2021, at Work Area #2 in the vicinity of Brookline Avenue and Riverway (near Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital), and at Work Area #3 on Netherlands Road.
“A one lane closure will be on Riverway, outbound from the Longwood Medical area, and on Netherlands Road to demobilize an excavator from Work Area #2 and mobilize it in Work Area #3,” USACE said. “The temporary lane closure will take place between 9 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. and last about 45 minutes.”
The temporary lane closures are necessary to bring equipment and materials in for dredging operations.
Dredging will begin in Work Area #3 later this month once the temporary construction fencing is installed, and the site preparation and mobilization is complete.
