The Massachusetts Trial Court has announced that exterior masonry work at the South Boston Municipal Courthouse at 535 East Broadway is scheduled to begin sometime after November 5, and will require temporary closure of the pedestrian pathway from the rear east side of the building to East Broadway. The work is expected to be completed by the end of December, weather permitting.
Construction work hours are scheduled 4:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m., Monday through Friday with possible non-disruptive work during regular hours and the possibility for some Saturday work. The courthouse will be open for business as usual.
Signs will be posted at the front and back of the courthouse to alert pedestrians. The work will also prohibit neighborhood parking at all times in the building’s rear driveway to allow contractor access and vehicle parking, with this restriction remaining in place until spring, as required for snow removal.
The Trial Court’s Facilities Management & Capital Planning Department has contracted with MJS Construction Inc., on this project. The work involves removing existing and installing new temporary staging, as required to extract deteriorating debris netting and all loose and delaminated cast stone and concrete materials, repoint open brick masonry joints, make as-needed stair repairs, and install new debris netting.
