Boston University Bridge Closures for Pile Driving September 24 and 25


BU bridge

MassDOT crews will be continuing overnight work on the Boston University Bridge, which carries traffic over the Charles River between Cambridge and Boston.

On Saturday, Sept. 24 and Sunday, Sept. 25, MassDOT’s contractor will close the BU Bridge from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. for pile driving operations. Traffic will be detoured to the Mass. Ave. Bridge along the existing signed detour route.  There will be loud noise impacts associated with the weekend work and delays are anticipated along the detour route. During the bridge closure, the western sidewalk will remain open for bicycle and pedestrian passage.
