Phase 1 Project Description
Beginning on July 5, 2013 for approximately three weeks, Medford St. in Somerville will be closed between the McGrath Highway and Ward St. to allow for sandblasting and painting of the Medford St. Railroad Bridge.
Pedestrians will still have access through Medford St. as one sidewalk will remain open during the duration of the closure.
When approaching from the North, traffic will be diverted down McGrath Highway/Route 28 to Cambridge St.
From the South, traffic will be diverted down South St. to a right on Windsor St., a left on Windsor Pl., a right on Webster Ave., up to Prospect Ave. and then out to Somerville Ave. Anyone approaching the bridge on Medford St. who reaches Ward St. will be diverted down Ward St. to a left on Harding St. and out to South St.
The map below displays these traffic diversions. This Detour Map is available as a PDF to view as a larger version and save for printing.
