Several buildings along Lower Broadway are now just a footnote in the history books, with Dunkin’ Donuts and the former Nail Salon on Beacham Street now demolished.
The Freightliner building on Lower Broadway is scheduled for demolition in June or July. The old Dunkin’ Donuts, which many might affectionately remember as Mike’s Donuts, went down late last week. The nail salon went down over the weekend.
The moves on Lower Broadway signal the full-speed-ahead approach on the site, which contract the daily news stream regarding the project.
Wynn Boston Harbor Spokesman Greg John said the traffic improvement project, which started last fall, will begin to pick up in the weeks to come.
“The next two weeks work is really going to ramp up,” he said. “It won’t be a change in what they were doing, but they will be ramping up the next two to three weeks.”
