Reid Overpass Closure


10/2/2013

Reid Overpass

Travel Advisory

Beginning at 8 p.m. on October 2, the Department of Transportation will be closing the side of the bridge (Reid Overpass) that carries Memorial Drive in the WESTBOUND direction over the rotary at the BU Bridge in Cambridge. The closure of the westbound side of the bridge, known as the Reid Overpass, is required to allow for the installation of a bridge expansion joint. The bridge is expected to reopen by 4 a.m. on Thursday, Oct. 3. All vehicles, cyclists, and pedestrians traveling west on Memorial Drive will be diverted to the surface roadways and through the BU Bridge/Brookline Street rotary, and back on to Memorial Drive. This is a continuation of work that required a four-month closure of the bridge in April to make structural repairs. Drivers that must travel through the affected area should expect delays and should reduce speed and use caution while approaching and traveling through the work zone and along the detour route.
