The Patrick Administration's I-495 Lowell Bridge Bundle Project to replace six bridges, taking place as part of the historic $3 Billion, eight-year Accelerated Bridge Program, reaches another milestone.
Beginning on Friday, December 11, construction crews working on the I-495 Lowell Bridge Project will work within the area that was closed in early November to demolish one half of the bridge over Woburn Street.
Work will take place overnight from 11 pm to 6 am on Saturday morning. As a safety precaution Woburn Street beneath the bridge will be closed during this time. The work zone beneath the bridge will be configured to allow emergency vehicles to pass if required.
To minimize disruption to the surrounding Woburn Street neighborhood, the project team has compressed the bulk of this construction work, which will have noise impacts, to Friday night only.
The Accelerated Bridge Program represents an historic investment in the repair and replacement of structurally-deficient Massachusetts bridges. The program will boost safety while creating hundreds of construction jobs on bridge projects.
