O'Brien Highway (Route 28) Reconstruction Project

As part of the Planning Board's permit (PB179) for the Cambridge Crossing development project, owned by Divco West, the project developer is required to re-design and re-construct O'Brien Highway from Land Boulevard to Third Street, in cooperation with the City of Cambridge and MassDOT. The reconstruction will include separated bicycle facilities, new sidewalks, enhanced pedestrian crossings, landscaping, and other features to make the corridor more comfortable for walking, biking, and accessing the new Lechmere Station being reconstructed as part of the Green Line Extension Project. Some work has begun and is being completed in phases and timed to work with the Lechmere Station reconstruction. Information on that timing and impacts to the Green Line service will be posted as it is known.
