Advisory: Traffic Impacts on Wednesday

March 5, 2014

Dear Colleagues:

I write to advise you of an event that may impact traffic for Wednesday afternoon.

The Harvard University Police Department has learned from the Cambridge Police Department that there will be a high-profile dignitary visiting the Harvard Square tomorrow afternoon between 4:00pm and 6:30pm and the visit will have a significant impact on vehicular traffic. This visit is not connected to the University.

The following streets and roads will be CLOSED to vehicular traffic:

  • JFK Street to Mt Auburn Street
  • South at Dunster Street
  • Winthrop Street, Dunster to Mt Auburn Streets
  • Eliot Street
  • University Road
  • Parts of Memorial Drive near JFK Street

Pedestrians will be allowed to travel in the area. Bicyclists will be asked to walk their bicycles while in the area.

Please feel to share this information with your communities if you feel there is a need.

Katie Lapp
Executive Vice President
