At the top of the exit ramp, turn onto Airport Rd. toward the airport and follow Airport Rd./Boylston Hwy./Highway 280 for 1.3 miles. Immediately after the end of the Airport Runway, turn right at the traffic light onto Ferncliff Park Drive (formerly named 'Old Fanning Bridge Rd.). As you reach the traffic circle, follow it around to the 3rd right-turn onto Old Fanning Bridge Rd. After 0.9 miles, turn right into our facility at the top of the hill on Research Drive.
