CAMBRIDGE, Mass., July21, 2017 – Beginning the week of July 24, 2017, the baseline rate for most parking meters in the City of Cambridge will begin to increase to $1.25 per hour. At the same time, meter rates in Harvard Square will be set at $1.50 per hour based on the high level of demand, while rates in certain outlying areas with lower demand will remain at the current rate of $1.00 per hour. The new rates, the first increase in baseline parking meter rates since 2008, will be phased in over the next month, starting with the changes in Harvard Square.

An intensive construction window for the Massachusetts Department of Transportation’s (MassDOT) upcoming Commonwealth Avenue Bridge Replacement Project is scheduled to take place between July 26, 2017 and August 14, 2017. There will be significant service impacts to all modes of transportation in the Boston University/Saint Paul Street neighborhood of Boston along Commonwealth Avenue, for Amtrak, MBTA, and commuter rail customers, BU Bridge vehicles and on I-90 (the Massachusetts Turnpike). As a result, Cambridge residents will also potentially be effected – to varying degrees -- by these service impacts.
