This notice is to inform you of the upcoming work contracted to be done on Washington Street. The Town of Brookline has recently awarded a construction contract to North American Site Development (NASDI, LLC.) of Woburn, Ma. This work includes the demolition of the existing pedestrian overpass bridge located on Washington Street.

 

Due to the nature of this type of construction, you may experience some temporary inconveniences such as traffic delays, detours, and noise. Construction activities and site preparations are scheduled to begin on September 28th, 2015. As part of the scope of work to remove the bridge over Washington Street a one time-full weekend, 24 hour road closure is scheduled to start on Friday October 9th, 2015 at 9:00 PM and will finish on Monday October 12, 2015 at 7:00 AM. Juniper Street will have limited access due to the road closure. Medical personnel and emergency responders and vehicles will have full access with assistance from the Brookline Police Department. Washington Street (along Route 9), MBTA Bus Stops, and on street parking will not be accessible; however the Town of Brookline Engineering Division and Contractor will try to keep all inconveniences to a minimum. MBTA bus stops for the 60, 65 and 66 buses will be relocated to the MBTA Station Street trolley station. Pedestrians will be re-routed from Washington Street to Pearl Street and Station Street. Written directions for navigating around the construction site and a detailed map indicating re-routing of all vehicles, pedestrians and MBTA buses will be posted on the Town’s website at http://www.brooklinema.gov/WashingtonBridgeDemolition.
