Western Avenue Utility Crossing & Roadway Realignment



As part of the district energy strategy for The Harvard Science and Engineering Complex (SEC) project, a utility tunnel is required to serve the proposed new building. This tunnel will run across Western Ave. from the former Charlsview site to the new SEC Project site.

To build this tunnel which will serve as a conduit for various utilities, Harvard is seeking to realign Western Ave. in the phased steps described below. Once the tunnel is complete, Harvard will inform you of the plan reversing the process to return Western Ave. to its original layout.

The road realignment is located at 130 to 140 Western Ave and will impact areas beginning from Travis Street to 135 Western Avenue. The work is set to begin the week of April 24th and continue into the first few weeks of May.
