Memorial Day Travel: No Construction, Free Coffee Served

Many will be travelling near and far this Memorial Day holiday.  Taking precautions could save lives.

The Massachusetts Department of Transportation has released a list of its accommodations for drivers on one of the heaviest traffic weekends of the year.

Here’s what driver’s can expect this Memorial Day Weekend, provided by MassDOT:

Construction work on major roadways will be suspended between Friday, May 24 at noon and the start of business Tuesday, May 28.

  • Free coffee will be served at 18 MassDOT service plazas between 10 p.m. Memorial Day, Monday, May 27 and 5 a.m. Tuesday, May 28.
  • MBTA buses will operate on a Sunday schedule on Memorial Day, Monday, May 27.
  • MassDOT recommends avoiding driving during peak traffic times, which are between 1 p.m. and 7 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Monday.

A specific note on where traffic is heaviest, from MassDOT:

“Traffic is especially heavy at the I-84 interchange at Exit 9 in Sturbridge on the Friday of Memorial Day weekend and at Exit 11A, I-495, which handles cars headed south to Cape Cod and north to New Hampshire and Maine. In 2012, the Friday before Memorial Day was the 13th busiest day on the Turnpike in terms of toll transactions with approximately 350,000 logged between I-95 and the New York Border.” read more

Former Herald Building Demolition, Ink Block Construction to Start

Rep. Aaron Michlewitz grabs a brick from a pile of bricks from the former Boston Herald building.

In a ceremony filled with memories from Boston Herald employees and hope for the future development of the neighborhood, Mayor Menino, state reps and city officials gathered in the South End on Thursday to say goodbye to the old building and welcome the new Ink Block development. 

Menino said he was happy to see a bridge built between the South End, Chinatown and South Boston with the new development, and the first full-sized grocery store come to the South End.

“The South End deserves this type of development,” he said. “As part of the ongoing transformation of the South End, this project will grow the neighborhood’s vitality with its diverse housing mix, new pedestrian activity and retail energy.”

The new development, situated at the corner of Harrison Ave and Traveler Street, will feature 475 units of housing in five buildings and 85,000 square feet of  retail space, including a  50,000-square-foot Whole Foods Market, which will be the chain’s largest location in Boston. read more

Construction to Start at Ink Block in April

A rendering of an aerial view from the south.

Construction at the Ink Block apartment complex site on Harrison Avenue is slated to start in April, but not before a special ground-breaking ceremony is held on April 11. 

Called the “Ink Block Party,” the event will feature Mayor Menino, Boston Redevelopment Authority Director Peter Meade, Ted Tye, managing partner with National Development, the project’s developer, and Joe Fitzgerald, a columnist from the Boston Herald. 

Menino will be removing a symbolic brick from the old Boston Herald building, and Fitzgerald will share memories from the paper’s 54-year history in the building. The Herald re-located to the Seaport District in 2011. 

The finished $ 200 million development will include 471 apartments, a Whole Foods supermarket, and other shops and restaurants on the 6-acre site.
