Wellesley Route 9 Cedar Street Bridge, May 2011 MassDOT will begin demolition work on the Cedar Street Bridge over Route 9 in Wellesley on July 1, 2011. This "Heavy Lift" project is being undertaken as part of the Patrick-Murray Accelerated Bridge Program and will replace the entire Cedar Street Bridge in a single weekend.
 
On Friday, July 1 at 10 PM, MassDOT will close the portion of Route 9 and Cedar Street within the work area, demolish the existing superstructure, and move the new replacement superstructure into place with special remote-controlled machines, all within a 72-hour time period.  The replacement superstructure is being built in the work area immediately northeast of the existing bridge and entirely outside of the roadway.

Detours will be in place during the process from July 1, 2011 at 10 PM to July 4, 2011 at 10 PM.

Route 9 Detour

Westbound traffic will be routed onto the exit ramp off Route 9, cross Cedar Street and take the entrance ramp back onto Route 9 just west of the existing bridge.

Eastbound traffic will follow the east bound exit ramp onto Worcester Street, cross Cedar Street and re-enter Route 9 via the entrance ramp east of the bridge. 

Cedar Street Detour

Southbound traffic travelling on Cedar Street will turn right onto Route 9 westbound and reverse direction at the next intersection, returning to Cedar Street south of the work zone via the exit ramp.

Northbound traffic travelling on Cedar Street will enter Route 9 eastbound and reverse direction at the next intersection, returning to Cedar Street north of the work zone via the exit ramp.

During the weekend work, MassDOT’s contractor will provide shuttle service to pedestrians crossing Route 9 via Cedar Street.  For more information on the project, please see the project website.
