About the Event

Event Monday, September 24, 2018 - 6:30pm - 8:00pm

Location

St. Clement Parish Hall
71 Warner St.
Medford, MA 02155
Although timelines are subject to change, current plans for construction of the Green Line Extension (GLX) call for the full closure of the Broadway Bridge, just east of Ball Square, for one full year beginning in January 2019. While the bridge is closed, detours will be in place for cars, bikes, pedestrians, and MBTA bus routes 80 and 89.
 
Please join Mayor Joseph A. Curtatone, Ward 5 Alderman Mark Niedergang, Ward 6 Alderman Lance Davis, City of Somerville staff, and representatives from the GLX team for a community meeting to discuss the upcoming bridge closure and detour routes. This is the second in a series of community meetings. A meeting was previously held on August 29. While there may be some minor updates to present at the September 24 meeting, the same general information will be shared.
 
Additional temporary bridge closures for varying periods are also planned for later construction phases in 2019 and 2020, including on Washington St. (between Union Square and Inner Belt), Medford St. (outside of Union Square), and School St. The meeting will touch upon these, but the Broadway Bridge closure will be the longest, most complex, and likely most impactful of all the bridge closures planned. This meeting will therefore focus primarily on upcoming construction and mitigation efforts in the Ball Square neighborhood this fall and through 2019.
 
For more information, including the latest proposed detours, please visit www.somervillema.gov/glx or the NEW project website, www.mass.gov/green-line-extension-project-glx.
