Braga Bridge/I-195 westbound and eastbound right lane and breakdown lane construction zones will be set up for steel repair and painting beginning the night of Tuesday, October 15. The contractor will begin the traffic set up on Tuesday, October 15 on the westbound side of the bridge and anticipates the work will be complete on Saturday morning, October 19. The work entails closing the middle and right lanes during the work hours of 7:30 PM to 4:00 AM. Traffic will be maintained using the left lane during the overnight hours. At the end of each work shift during this timeframe, the middle lane will be reopened to traffic and the right lane and shoulder will remain closed. The eastbound construction zone set up will begin the night of Sunday, October 20 and continue through Friday morning, October 25. The work hours and traffic pattern will be the same as for the work on the westbound side of the bridge. The schedule is weather-dependent.
Once the construction zones are established, the right lane and shoulder of Braga Bridge/I-195 westbound and eastbound will be closed through spring 2015. Drivers should anticipate traffic congestion during peak periods and allow extra time.
Additional project restrictions include the closure of Canal Street, from Spring Street to Broadway Extension, effective Thursday, October 10, as part of the project.
