Pedestrians and drivers may experience temporary route changes and delays related to two different utility work activities on the north side of the campus, starting today.
Crews began working today to widen the road at the intersection of University Drive and of Columbia Point Road, which runs between the Edward M. Kennedy Institute and the Massachusetts Archives near Lot A. During this first phase of utility mechanical vault work, Columbia Point Road will be a one-way roadway. The sidewalk adjacent to Lot A will be closed, and pedestrians will be directed to the opposite side of the road.
Work will be done on weekdays only, and is expected to be completed by Tuesday, April 15.
On Monday, April 14, from 4 to 11 p.m., the right side of the roadway connecting University Drive to Mt. Vernon Street, between Lots B and C, will be closed. Buses and other vehicles will not be able to exit onto Mt. Vernon Street and will all exit at Morrissey Boulevard.
During this time, MBTA buses will not be coming on to campus. Pick-up and drop-off will be at the half-moon parking area near Lot D at the end of Mt. Vernon St.
The sidewalk will also be closed during this time.
This closure is for Comcast trenching related to the Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the United States Senate.
Public Safety will direct motorists and pedestrians during both work activities.
