Fenwood Road Closure, Shuttle change
From now through May 15, Fenwood Road will be fully closed between Vining and Binney streets, as underground utility work is being conducted for the Brigham Building for the Future. Partners shuttle riders can continue to use the shuttle stop in front of the Shapiro Center at 70 Francis St., but should expect some route delays due to the closure. MASCO Fenway and M-6 shuttle riders will need to use a temporary shuttle stop, located at the corner of Francis and Binney streets. The Ruggles, JFK and Crosstown MASCO shuttle stop will remain at 70 Francis St. Visit BWHPikeNotes.org to learn more.
