Traffic and Parking Advisory Saturday at BCEC

The Boston Police Promotional Examination and the Probation Officers Exam are both taking place at the BCEC on Saturday, June 28, 2014 from 9 am - noon. About 3,000 total attendees and are expected to come in all at once. The MCCA Transportation Department is preparing for heavy traffic congestion at the start and break of both events.

It is anticipated that overflow parking will be needed for these two exams and maps will be distributed to test takers who wish to go directly to overflow so as to avoid traffic congestion at the BCEC. The following parking garages will be used for overflow parking:

• Channel Center Garage
• Necco Street Garage (as a secondary alternative)

A complimentary shuttle will also transport attendees between the offsite garage(s) and the BCEC.

As both of these exams are all in events, the MCCA Transportation Department foresees the possibility of attendees coming all at once and/or last minute attendees attempting to park at no parking areas. Police details will therefore have to be hired to manage the traffic and catch any parking violators. In addition to the South Boston police detail, Massachusetts State police will also be on hand at South Boston Bypass Rd & Cyprus from 6 am - 2 pm.
