Longfellow Bridge

There will be no lane closures from Friday, May 22 to 12:00 PM on Tuesday, May 26 for the Memorial Day holiday weekend.

In the current construction phase, one lane of traffic carries vehicles into Boston (using the former Cambridge-bound lane), except on MBTA Red Line diversion weekends. For the duration of the project, all Cambridge-bound traffic is being detoured using a signed route from Charles Circle following Charles Street to Leverett Circle, Monsignor O’Brien Highway/Charles River Dam Road and Edwin H. Land Boulevard. To learn more please review the detour route map. An alternate detour route uses Storrow Drive westbound to the Massachusetts Avenue Bridge. Please note: Storrow Drive and Memorial Drive have truck restrictions.

Emergency response, bicycle and pedestrian access, and MBTA Red Line service will be maintained across the bridge during construction.

 
Anderson Memorial Bridge

The Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) will be making a traffic shift change required for Phase 3 of the Anderson Memorial Bridge Rehabilitation Project starting on the morning of Friday, May 8, 2015.

During phase 3 of the project, MassDOT's contractor will be demolishing and rebuilding the west side of the Anderson Memorial Bridge, which carries traffic over Charles River between Boston and Cambridge. To accommodate this work, traffic will be directed onto the newly constructed east half of the bridge. The traffic shift will be done in phases. During the traffic shift, one lane of travel in each direction will remain open along with a pedestrian sidewalk.

Once the traffic shift has been completed, the westerly sidewalk will be closed and traffic will be reduced to one lane in each direction on the east side of the bridge. Pedestrians will need to use the easterly sidewalk and bicyclists will need to share the current eastbound and westbound lanes. The left hand turn restriction will remain in place at Memorial Drive and JFK Street.
