Below is the construction update for the North Washington Street Bridge Replacement Project as provided by the Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT).
To help construct the temporary bridge, the Paul Revere Park Playground and Tudor Wharf Walkway will be closed from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. for about two weeks.
Beginning Thursday March 14, MassDOT’s contractor for replacement of the North Washington Street Bridge, JF White, will begin driving piles to support the temporary bridge in the area near the Paul Revere Park Playground. In order to ensure safety for the public and create an effective workzone, the playground and the walkway will be closed during work hours (7 a.m. – 3 p.m).
Pedestrian access will be maintained via the Water Street underpass, with directional signage in place to guide people along the detour.
Paul Revere Park will remain open and accessible except for the playground area. Nearby playgrounds include North Point Park near EF Education First, the Charlestown Naval Shipyard Park Playground in the Navy Yard at 6th Street, Thomas Menino Park at the Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital.
