The Boston Public Works Department announced today that the Sullivan Square Underpass will be closed for routine maintenance this weekend. No traffic will be allowed to use the underpass from 9 PM on Friday, October 28, through 6 PM on Sunday, October 30.
The maintenance to be performed is in preparation for the upcoming winter and is intended to improve safety and minimize the incidence of unscheduled traffic interruptions. The work to take place includes the replacement of guard rails, the repair of concrete and street lights, and the cleaning of drainage structures that will help to prevent flooding.
The Sullivan Square Underpass connects Rutherford Avenue with Alford Street and directly effects traffic in both Charlestown and Everett. Drivers are encouraged to seek alternate routes away from this area as traffic congestion is expected in the general vicinity.
