The Massachusetts Avenue Bridge over the Charles River will be closed to traffic on Wednesday, April 24, 2013, from 7 AM until approximately 4 PM.
The City of Boston Transportation Department is expecting heavy traffic on the entire stretch of Massachusetts Avenue and drivers are strongly encouraged to seek alternate routes throughout the day. The Boston Police Department will be controlling traffic at several intersections along the roadway.
Afternoon traffic in the area will be further impacted by a scheduled 4 PM Red Sox game. Fans are urged to leave their vehicles at home and take the MBTA to Fenway Park. The ballpark is served by public transportation via the MBTA Green Line to Kenmore Station. MBTA service will be provided at rush hour levels in advance of the game and extra service will be provided when the game is over. For a faster return trip, the MBTA strongly advises riders to purchase a round trip rather than a one-way ticket when heading to the game.
