Closing of Medford Street in Somerville
The Green Line Extension (GLX) team would like to notify you of upcoming Phase 1 project work in Somerville. Beginning on Monday, July 21, 2014 for approximately three weeks, Medford Street in Somerville will be closed to traffic between McGrath Highway and Ward Street to allow for top coat painting of the Medford St. Railroad Bridge.
Pedestrians will still have access through Medford St. as one sidewalk will remain open during the duration of the closure.
This work is part of the widening of the Medford Street Railroad Bridge to allow for Green Line tracks to run alongside the Commuter Rail tracks.
