Sewer Line Work Set for Jan. 13-17 on Commonwealth Ave.

A Physical Plant contractor will be making emergency repairs to a sewer line in the Mullins Center/Commonwealth Avenue area from Monday to Friday, Jan. 13-17.

The western-most southbound lane of Commonwealth Avenue will be closed to traffic along Parking Lot 25 and the practice rink to the Campus Center Way intersection. UMass Police will direct traffic.

The northerly entry/exit to Lot 25 on Commonwealth Avenue will be closed for the duration of the project. Sidewalks in the area will also be closed and pedestrian routes will be restricted. The southern-most section of construction area (within the Mullins Center plaza) will not be fenced until Wednesday, Jan. 15. All work is expected to be completed and all fences and restrictions removed by the end of the day on Jan. 17.

Questions about this project should be directed to Physical Plant project manager Tom Fydenkevez at
