MassDOT will reopen the two inbound travel lanes on Route 28 southbound at the intersection of Land Boulevard in Cambridge on Tuesday, April 26, 7:00 am. The southbound (inbound) lanes were closed in January as part of Phase II of the Craigie Drawbridge Rehabilitation Project and are reopening on schedule. The Charles River Channel will also reopen to all marine traffic on Tuesday, April 26 at 7:00 am.
Starting in November 2010 through April 2011, the contractor successfully completed a 24/7 rapid replacement of the Craigie Drawbridge as required by United States Coast Guard permit, with night construction in January seen at left.
The final phase of this project includes streetscape work and landscaping. During the work, there will be lane restrictions on Route 28 northbound and southbound in the vicinity of the bridge during off-peak hours. The project will be complete by August 2011.
The Craigie Drawbridge carries McGrath O’Brien Highway (Route 28) between Land Blvd. in Cambridge and Leverett Circle in Boston. The Craigie Drawbridge Rehabilitation Project is part of the Patrick – Murray Administration’s historic Accelerated Bridge Program to repair structurally deficient bridges, including historic bridges along the Charles River.
