The Eastbound Shoreway (Rt. 2) will be closed from 6:30pm-10:30pm on September 10, due to a large cycling event. There is also other construction happening on the Shoreway and some exits may be closed. We recommend freeway commuters use I-90.

In general, please plan plenty of time for travel, as we are expecting higher than normal traffic in our neighborhood. As parking space is extremely limited, we encourage you to take advantage of the complimentary valet parking beginning at 6:30pm.
