    (Published Thursday, July 26, 2018)

    Some commuters into Boston should get ready for two weeks of headaches.

    The Commonwealth Avenue bridge replacement project scheduled to start Thursday is expected to impact not just Comm Ave, but the Mass Pike as well as some MBTA services.

    The work will require lane shutdowns and ramp closures on the Pike. While some lane shutdowns will occur overnight, some will be required during peak hours. Drivers are being warned to expect delays.

    Comm Ave and the BU Bridge will close to vehicular traffic during the work, although cyclists and pedestrians will be able to cross Comm Ave.
