Traffic Advisory for Memorial Day Weekend
From the Boston Transportation Department:
Several special events taking place in the City of Boston this Memorial Day weekend will impact traffic and parking. Drivers, cyclists and pedestrians are all urged to follow the rules of the road and to share Boston’s local streets safely and considerately. At some locations traffic will be detoured and delayed, and on-street parking will be restricted. Those attending the festivities are encouraged not to drive their personal vehicles. Information on Hubway, the regional bike-share service, may be found at www.theHubway.com and information on the MBTA may be found at www.MBTA.com . For a faster return trip, the MBTA advises riders to purchase a round-trip rather than a one-way ticket.

The Boston Calling Music Festival will take place on Boston City Hall Plaza throughout the weekend.
