Needham-Newton Corridor Project

MassDOT's contractor, P. Gioioso & Sons, will implement a closure of the Bridge over the Charles River from 8:00 PM on Thursday, February 15 to 4:00 AM the following morning. This closure will require a vehicular detour and is necessary to install precast sidewalk panels along the bridge. 

Police details will be present to facilitate this traffic pattern and variable messaging boards will be in place to display the most up-to-date information. While crews are working at the Bridge:

Vehicles traveling from Highland Avenue in Needham toward Newton should:

  • Turn right onto 2nd Avenue 
  • Turn right onto 4th Avenue
  • Turn left onto Kendrick Street, which becomes Nahanton Street
  • Turn left onto Winchester Street and continue straight to Dedham Street

Vehicles traveling from Needham Street in Newton toward Needham should:

  • Turn right onto Oak Street
  • Turn left onto Chestnut Street
  • Turn left onto Elliott Street, which becomes Central Avenue
  • Turn left onto Gould Street to Highland Avenue
