Advisory

Traffic Advisory

The Boston Marathon and the City of Boston’s Patriot’s Day Parade will be held on Monday, April 16, 2018.  The BAA 5K and the Invitational Mile will be held on Saturday, April 14, 2018.  These events will result in street closures and parking restrictions in the Back Bay, Beacon Hill, Brighton, Fenway-Kenmore, the North End and Government Center.  People coming into Boston for these events are urged not to drive their personal vehicles.  Information on Blue Bikes, the regional bike share system, may be found at www.theHubway.com and information on the MBTA may be found at www.MBTA.com.  For a faster return trip, the MBTA advises riders to purchase a round-trip rather than a one-way ticket.  Walking is also a great way to move around the City of Boston.

Changes to this traffic and parking plan may be made by the City of Boston’s Police and Transportation Departments for the purpose of advancing public safety and traffic management.  It is important to read all posted signs and variable message boards carefully.
