The MBTA has announced that a planned weekend diversion of Red Line and car traffic from the Longfellow Bridge has been cancelled, and a subsequent planned diversion has been postponed. In layman’s terms, that means cars and Red Line trains will continue to travel over the bridge next weekend, September 14-15. It also means that the diversion planned for the weekend of October 19-20 will be postponed to the weekend before Thanksgiving, November 23-24.
As always, you can find more information on the Longfellow Bridge project and traffic management plans at MassDOT. For questions, to report issues and concerns related to construction, or to be added to the project email distribution list, please call the project hotline at 617-519-9892 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
