The Commonwealth Avenue Bridge Replacement Project starts Thursday July 26th. The affected area remains open to bicycle travel, and Bluebikes is here to help.

In anticipation of increased bike travel in the area, we are deploying a temporary station and expanding our Valet Services in the area (see map below).
