Muddy River dredging update

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New England District yesterday provided an update on the $36.5 million Muddy River Flood Risk Management project in Boston and Brookline, Massachusetts.

As dredging activities continue to progress on Phase 2 of the Muddy River FRM project, new temporary road closures have been put in place for the Netherlands Road.

“Temporary road closures will take place on April 13-14, 2021, on Netherlands Road as equipment and materials are moved to project Work Area #1 (Leverett Pond – Pond Ave in Brookline) from Work Area #4, in the vicinity of Riverway and Netherlands Road (near the Brookline DPW building),” USACE said in the release.

They also added that dredging is complete at Work Area #4 and will progress to Work Area #1 (Leverett Pond).

Dredging will begin at Leverett Pond later this month once the site access and mobilization is complete. Site access and mobilization to Leverett Pond will begin April 12, 2021, concluded the Army Corps.
