MassDOT will close a section of West Columbus Avenue in Springfield just north of the Memorial Bridge between Hampden Street and Boland Way starting Monday as part of the ongoing rehabilitation of the Interstate 91 viaduct over downtown. The closure is necessary to allow contractors to widen the roadway to serve traffic more safely once the viaduct construction begins in earnest later this year. To access West Columbus Avenue near the Memorial Bridge from Hampden Street, turn left on East Columbus Avenue. Turn right onto Boland Way. Turn left onto West Columbus Avenue/Hall of Fame Avenue.
