Major closures in Boston as demolition continues on Government Center garage after deadly collapse

BOSTON — Major streets in Boston will be closed to traffic Monday as demolition continues at the Government Center garage.

Motorists are being urged to expect delays due to work at the One Congress construction site after it was stopped due to a deadly collapse earlier this year.

Demolition worker Peter Monsini, 51-year-old, of South Easton, was operating a piece of heavy equipment on the ninth floor on March 26 when the floor fell apart and he was killed.

In the immediate aftermath of the collapse, roads were closed and Orange and Green Line services were replaced by shuttle buses while investigators determined the safety of the structure. Three days after the partial collapse, the MBTA resumed Orange Line subway service between North Station and Back Bay Station following inspections of the tunnels.

This operation will require a full closure of Congress Street from New Chardon Road to Sudbury Street. The detour will be in effect from July 11 - September 5, 2022.

The signed detours shown below will be in full effect for vehicles, bicycles and pedestrians:
