As you may be aware, Tufts University, in cooperation with the city of Somerville, has been working on a Traffic Safety Improvement Project in your neighborhood. The project entails the expansion of the sidewalk areas at the four corners of the intersection of Powder House Boulevard and Packard Avenue. The work is designed to enhance pedestrian and bicycle safety at the intersection.
We are writing to inform you that the intersection will be closed, with detours in place, on Tuesday, November 12th, from 10AM to 2PM; and on Wednesday, November 13th , from 9:30AM to 2:30PM. The re-surfacing of the street will take place then, with project close out coming soon after. Several police details will be present during intersection closure to aid in traffic flow and project safety.
Thank you for your patience.
Tufts Department of Public and Environmental Safety
