PARKAPOCALYPSE? Monday Metrowest Disaster? You choose your disaster title!
Alewife MBTA garage is closed to new traffic; 5 Investigates (broke the story) and other news crews are on scene, I imagine it's almost as good as a snowstorm newscast.
Town of Arlington alerts note that MBTA will be closing the garage over weekend, at least partly closed on Monday, parking at Thorndike field allowed:
Alewife Garage Closures Starting Today Through Weekend
It is anticipated there may be partial closure of Alewife on Monday, Thorndike Field parking area available Monday only.
The MBTA has informed the Town Alewife Garage is closing today for
repairs, will be closed this weekend, and is expected to be partially
closed on Monday. On Monday only, the Town of Arlington will make
Thorndike Field Parking Area available to Redline Commuters to help
mitigate parking issues associated with decreased garage capacity. The
MBTA will keep Town up to date on further developments as they arise.
