What's Happening In The Channelside Parking Lot?

MassDOT is preforming work on the Ted William's tunnel including the Superplug joint where the underwater portion of the tunnel meets the land tunnel. 

As you can see a portion of the Channelside parking lot (near A Street & Necco) is closed off as a work zone. The remainder of the lot remains open to the public. Work will consist of erosion control, temporary utility relocation, temporary drainage, temporary lighting, and installation of support of excavation, excavation, dewatering, storage of fill, structural repairs to the Superplug joint, and restoration of the parking lot. Substantial completion of work pertaining to this stage must be reached by September 01, 2020. The work is being performed by R. Zoppo General Contractors and Builders and is taking place Mondays through Fridays from 7 am to 3 pm. 

Although Mayor Walsh issued an order to pause non-essential construction, the state is not required to follow the order. The City is starting to ease essential construction today. At the end of April, the City's Inspectional Services Department implemented safety protocols for essential construction work. 
  • May 18, 2020 -The City of Boston will allow essential construction project on sites that meet the following criteria: (1) Projects are permitted, in compliance and have filed a Covid-19 Safety plan and a signed affidavit; (2) Project sites are sufficiently prepared to adhere to all criteria of their safety plan; and (3) the work is for hospitals, public schools, residential buildings [1-3 units], road and utility work, or other outdoor/open air-work such as steel erection, roofing and constructing foundations. 
  • May 26, 2020 -The City of Boston will allow all essential construction projects to re-commence construction activities in adherence to their safety plans. This incremental approach will provide the time necessary to allow complex, large-scale development an opportunity to educate their workforce, safely remobilize and implement their site-specific Safety Plan.
