Washington St bridge closure meeting
Wednesday, March 13, 6:30-8 pm
East Somerville Community School Auditorium, 50 Cross St.
Please join Mayor Joseph A. Curtatone, Ward 1 City Councilor Matthew McLaughlin, Ward 2 City Councilor J.T. Scott, Ward 3 City Councilor Ben Ewen-Campen, City of Somerville staff, and representatives from the GLX team for a community meeting on Wednesday, March 13, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. to discuss the upcoming Washington St. bridge closure and detour routes. The meeting will be held in the auditorium at the East Somerville Community School, 50 Cross St.
Starting in April 2019, GLX Constructors will begin reconstructing the Washington St. bridge in East Somerville, between Union Square and Inner Belt. The underpass below the bridge will close to all traffic, and detours will be in place for cars, bikes, pedestrians, and MBTA bus routes 86, 91, and CT2. This bridge and the underpass will close for two different intervals: first, from April 2019 through the fall of 2019, then again from the spring of 2020 through the fall of 2020.
