College Avenue & Boston Avenue Intersection Improvements

In an effort to improve pedestrian, bicycle and vehicular safety conditions at the Boston and College Avenue intersection, Tufts (in cooperation with the City of Medford) is making improvements to the intersection this summer.

Construction will continue along the west sidewalk (Campus Hill Side) of the intersection through Thursday, August 17th at which point the sidewalk will be complete and reopened for pedestrian traffic.

Re-paving of the intersection roadway will take place on the night of Friday, August 18th beginning at 8:00pm into Saturday, August 19th.  Following the re-paving, the line striping work will take place nightly (8:00pm-5:00am) beginning Sunday, August 20th through Friday, September 1st.  This schedule of roadway activities is weather permitting and there may be variations in construction activities as needed.  We apologize for any inconvenience during this crucial phase of construction.

Route and traffic interruptions will be published in advance to University Announcements.
