The bridge preservation work is taking place under the Patrick Administration’s historic Accelerated Bridge Program (ABP), a $3 Billion recovery effort to repair bridges throughout the state.
One of the bridges provides a critical connection between Route I-95/Route 128 and Routes 1 and 129 and will re-open to its full width on Wednesday, November 11, 2009, 10 months ahead of the original schedule.
The second bridge, which provides a connection between Route 1 north and Route I-95/Route 128 north, is slated to re-open to its full width within the next week, subject to the continuation of favorable weather conditions to allow some minor work to take place.
The bridge decks on these structures were demolished and rebuilt according to the highest quality control and safety standards. After the winter months, additional work will take place to clean and paint the structural steel portions of the bridges.
More information and updates about the Accelerated Bridge Program is available here.
