TO: Faculty and Staff, Medford/Somerville

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 Wednesday, August 16 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 Wednesday, August 16 (8:00pm-5:00am).  Following the re-paving, the line striping work will take place at night (8:00pm-5:00am) beginning Thursday, August 17 through Friday, September 1. 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.
