somervillelogoIn cooperation with the City of Somerville, Tufts University is conducting work at the intersection of Packard Avenue and Powder House Boulevard to improve pedestrian safety infrastructure. The project, which entails the expansion of the sidewalks at each of the four corners of the intersection, will necessitate the temporary closure of the intersection on Tuesday, Nov. 12, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and Wednesday, Nov. 13, from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Detours will be in place during these hours, as follows:

  • Powder House Blvd. westbound will be closed at Burnham Street. Traffic will be detoured onto Burnham St. and onto Broadway to Packard Ave.
  • Powder House Blvd. eastbound will be closed at Burnham Street. Traffic will be detoured onto Packard Ave. to Broadway and then to the Powder House Rotary.

Police details will be present during all construction to aid in traffic flow and project safety.

For additional information during normal working hours about this project, please contact Barbara Rubel, Director of Community Relations at Tufts, at 617 627-3780.  For after hours safety concerns about the site itself, please contact Tufts University Police at 617 627-3030.

This project is being fully funded by Tufts University.

    Is the wording wrong “westbound will be closed at Burnham Street” &
    “eastbound will be closed at Burnham Street” Also they finished pouring the cement at the final corner yesterday (Friday 11-8). So what’s happening on the Blvd between Packard Ave & Burnham St???? Tufts installing a mobile dorm bldg…lol By the way…I contacted Barbara Rubel, Director of Community Relations at Tufts, over a year ago for some info regarding Tufts Football…never got a reply….What do you think my chances are of getting an honary degree from Tufts…Though there are two elected officiasl who probably will down the line.

    Tufts football? Try following a real football program like the University of Michigan, the alma mater of Tom Brady. Or you can stay with the Jumbos if you like.
