Traffic on the Route 38/110 Hunts Falls Bridge over the Merrimack River in Lowell will be detoured Sunday and Monday, January 24-25, from 8:30pm- 5:00am to allow crews to make substructure repairs.

On Sunday night, northbound drivers will be detoured from Route 38/110 (Nesmith Street), left at East Merrimack Street, right at Bridge Street, over the Central Bridge and onto the VFW Highway (Route 38). From there Route 110 Northbound traffic will turn right on Route 38 and continue along the VFW Highway as it becomes Route 110. 

On Monday night, drivers heading to the Hunts Falls Bridge via Route 38/110 should follow the posted detour route from the VFW Highway, turning onto Bridge Street over the Central Bridge, left on East Merrimack Street to Route 38/110 (Nesmith Street) .
