MassDOT Sidewalk Improvements Starts Tuesday

MassDOT is repairing sidewalks, crosswalks, and pedestrian ramps previously constructed under the CA/T Project (Big Dig) along A Street, Boston Wharf Road and Congress Street in advance of turning over these assets to the City Of Boston. There will be street parking restrictions.

Project Scope
A Street: from Iron St. to Melcher St. 
Boston Wharf Rd:  Easterly side only. 
Congress St: from Boston Wharf/West Service Rd to 1-90 ramp.

Starting Tuesday, June 9, 2020, sidewalk and curb repair preparation will begin on A Street starting at Iron Street. Sidewalks closures will occur from Richards Street to the Summer Street underpass as the project advances. The work will be performed in three phases and street parking will be impacted. The pedestrian sidewalk path will be diverted around the work zones and access to the buildings with front doors on A Street will be coordinated by the on-site construction team. There will be a temporary pedestrian pathway created in the bike/parking lane after hours. Pedestrian channeling devices and cones will be used to create this walkway. In addition, trees will be protected and missing / dead trees will be replaced. The work is estimated to complete in 30 days.

Work Hours with Crew on Site: 7:00 am to 3:30 pm.
There maybe short periods of time during trench excavations where the side road will require a temporary closure and detour. All detours will be removed and all side roads opened by 3 pm each day.

All residential & commercial abutters to sidewalk reconstruction work zones will receive notices & no parking signs posted (72) hours prior to any work commencing.

More details will be added as they become available.
