Boston Officials Outline Gradual Construction Restart

Projects closed by the city’s COVID-19 work-stop order prepare to reopen

Boston’s historic building boom, dormant since the onset of the new coronavirus pandemic in March, is poised to get a kickstart.

Boston officials laid out plans for a gradual resumption in a wide range of construction activity by the end of May, with restrictions lifted incrementally over the course of the month. The rollout will culminate on May 26 when contractors, developers and project owners can resume a wide range of projects, such as condo towers, deemed non-essential in the city’s COVID-19 stop-work order issued March 16.
