Brookline Avenue has been changed into a one-way street inbound between the Riverway Connector and Park Drive and will stay that way for about six months. The change, which began last week, is part of the Muddy River Restoration Project.
The change was originally announced as starting Sept. 16, but was pushed back by delays in installing temporary street lighting, according to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, which is carrying out the project.
Vehicles from Boylston Street and Brookline Avenue traveling outbound need to turn right onto Park Drive and travel around the old Sears parking lot to continue outbound on Brookline Avenue. There will be message boards on site to assist in understanding the detour.
A new walkway has also been constructed around the former Sears parking lot for pedestrian travel through the project area. These changes are being made so that the installation of a culvert under Brookline Avenue can continue.
