Effective Monday, Sept. 8, 2014, MassDOT will be closing the ramp from Storrow Drive eastbound to the Fenway via the Bowker Overpass, and the right travel lane beginning at the ramp on Storrow Drive westbound to the Fenway via the Bowker Overpass. See map below.
The closures will be implemented between the hours of 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. The closures will be implemented daily, Monday through Friday, next week.
On Saturday, these restrictions will be in place beginning at 7 a.m. through 11 p.m.
The closures are required to allow for the demolition and removal of portions of the existing bridge deck and installation of temporary road plates.
Lane closures on Commonwealth Avenue and Beacon Street will also be implemented on an as-needed basis to facilitate the staging of equipment for demolition and removal of the bridge deck of the overpass. These lane restrictions will fall within the same window as the ramp closures.
