Impacts to Drivers on Beacon Street in Brookline and Central Avenue and Capen Street in Milton

There may be lane closures, and some parking spaces may be temporarily unavailable overnight during the prep work. These restrictions are required for storing materials and accessing the tracks and, on Beacon Street, will likely apply on the median side of the street.
