MassDOT reports a piece of "delaminated concrete" fell on a car parked on the second floor of the garage at Alewife station this afternoon.
Nobody was hurt at least, and engineers said the garage in general remains safe for use, but MassDOT says the second floor will be shut tomorrow for "limited spot repairs."
The move means the loss of about 500 of the garage's 2,500 spaces, so good luck getting a spot tomorrow.
Following completion of spot repairs on the second floor and out of an abundance of caution, the MBTA will also be conducting assessments on each of the remaining floors of the garage and performing spot repairs as necessary. As work crews shift locations, the MBTA will ensure the path of travel remains open to the rest of the garage.
The MBTA is in the process of developing a long-term plan for the garage and is awarding a $5.7 million contract this week for initial work.
