Parking Alert! Heavy Traffic Expected on Race Day

Parking Alert! Heavy Traffic Expected on Race Morning
Suffolk University is holding Commencement ceremonies next door at the Blue Hills Bank Pavilion on race morning at 9:00am.This means traffic will be heavier than usual AND parking will be more limited on race day. So please plan ahead, arrive early, and take public transportation or carpool!

We have identified a few parking lots for you to use on race day here on Parkapedia. Again, please consider using public transit and carpooling. 


The closest parking lot is a garage here in the Boston Marine Industrial Park on Northern Ave just across the street from the brewery, or Lot #1 on this map. If you try to park in this garage, you’ll likely sit in traffic as this gets backed up every year.

if you do park in this garage, to avoid commencement traffic:  Instead of entering the Industrial Park via Northern Ave, we suggest you come via Summer St. and enter the park via Drydock Ave.  The Garage will be on your left.


Bottom Line: Plan accordingly. There are some lots further down the street around the World Trade Center and it is a short walk/jog to the brewery.
