CONCORD, Mass. – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New England District announced today that dredging activities continue to progress on Phase 2 of the $36.5 million Muddy River Flood Risk Management project in Boston and Brookline, Massachusetts.  

Beginning Nov. 11, 2020, temporary periodic lane closures will take place at Work Area #2 in the vicinity of Brookline Avenue and Riverway (near Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital). The lane closures will be on Riverway, outbound from the Longwood Medical area. The periodic lane closures will take place between 9 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. daily and last about 45 minutes each time.

The temporary lane closures are necessary in order to bring equipment and materials in for dredging operations. Dredging will begin in Work Area #2 later this month once the temporary construction fencing is installed, and the site preparation and mobilization is complete.
