This will affect all transportation through Commonwealth Avenue including, pedestrians, bikers, and commuters by car, bus, or train.
Due to the delays and closures, some Boston University staff might be working off campus during these two weeks. If you plan on stopping by an office, call or email ahead and make sure the office is open and the person you wish to speak to is there.
View a map of the construction area on the Massachusetts Department of Transportation blog. In addition, follow MassDOT and their Communications staffer Patrick Marvin (who has a great GIF game) on Twitter for timely updates. And of course, our own BU Today will have BU-specific updates as needed.
Before you hop on your bike, or call an Uber, be mindful of the potential detours and delays.
