Boston Red Sox Playoff , Friday, October 4, 2013, 3:00 PM

Scope: The Red Sox Playoff Game, on Friday, October 4, 2013, at 3:00 PM will begin to affect traffic on the streets surrounding Fenway Park as fans arrive around 2:00 PM.  The traffic leaving the game combines with the PM rush hour often causing traffic delays in the LMA.  Please plan accordingly.

 

Traffic/Other Impacts/ We anticipate traffic delays during evening rush hour. There will be no parking on Van Ness Street and Yawkey Way.
