Burns Bridge Live Web Cam, January 7, 2014The Kenneth F. Burns Memorial Bridge replacement project in Worcester-Shrewsbury is moving into an important phase during winter 2014.

Demolition of the old Burns Bridge will begin following a traffic shift. The shift of traffic from the existing bridge to a new span is upcoming in the next several weeks weather permitting.

The demolition is currently anticipated to run approximately four and a half months.

The $89 million Kenneth F. Burns Memorial Bridge Project is a signature initiative of the Patrick Administration’s historic Accelerated Bridge Program. The replacement bridge will carry Route 9, known as Belmont Street in Worcester and Turnpike Road in Shrewsbury, over Lake Quinsigamond.

This morning’s Bird’s Eye Camera View can be seen, above.  Visit the Burns website to view the work:
