FROM THE CHARLES STREET RECONSTRUCTION OFFICE:
Beginning on or about May 6, 2013, Phase 1 of the Charles Street Reconstruction Project will be implemented. North Charles Street through traffic will be maintained from 25th Street to 28th street. Charles Street from 28th Street to University Parkway will be open only to northbound local traffic and emergency vehicles. Throughout the duration of the project, businesses will remain open.
Vehicles traveling northbound on Charles Street will be diverted at 28th Street to continue north on Calvert Street; southbound travelers will use St. Paul Street. East-west Streets will remain open throughout the project (including the connection between Art Museum Drive and 33rd Street), except for periodic weekend closures on Charles Street between 25th and 28th Streets. This project will cause a decrease in unrestricted parking spots during construction. Some parking spots will remain on Charles Street for local and business parking. Residential Parking Permits (RPP) will be maintained throughout construction. Please be aware the majority of the parking during construction will be temporary back-in angle parking. Please refer people to the website- http://charlesstreetreconstruction.com/index.php/traffic-pattern-phases for FAQs, maps of detours, changes to pedestrian and vehicle paths, and parking restrictions.
