This year we are undertaking significant projects to improve safety, maintain facilities, and make programmatic improvements.  While we are taking steps to reduce the impact on the community, the summer months will include disruptive activities.

This first installment provides a brief outline of the projects.

Summer 2019 Capital Projects

Gund Hall – Waterproofing

Projected Completion – Summer 2019
The scope of this project includes removing brick sidewalk on Quincy Street and Cambridge Street to accommodate waterproofing activities.

  • The sidewalks on Quincy Street (Cambridge Street to Kirkland Street) will be closed for the duration of the project. Pedestrians in the area will be detoured.
  • The Blue Bikes station will be relocated to the Quincy Street/Cambridge Street intersection for the duration of the project.
  • There is a small amount of waterproofing needed on the Cambridge Street side of the building. During this work, pedestrians will be impacted.
