Work That Has Been Completed
Continued demolition of the existing bridge.
The western sidewalk on the temporary bridge and the Lovejoy Wharf stairs near Converse are open to the public. The Harborwalk passing under the bridge remains closed.
The Tudor Wharf Walkway (under the bridge next to the water in Paul Revere Park) will be intermittently closed for safety during construction operations, with access provided via the Water Street underpass.
The contractor is coordinating with the TD Garden and local police to provide awareness and manage traffic impacts during events. For your awareness, there will be no events at the TD Garden during this look ahead schedule.
