Fairhaven- I-195 Bridge, Panel, March 23, 2013MassDOT will continue the accelerated replacement of the River Avenue Bridge on Interstate 195 in Fairhaven this weekend.

Here is the project's impact for motorists traveling Eastbound on Interstate 195:

Friday, April 5, 9 p.m.

Traffic will be restricted to one lane Eastbound on I-195 and shifted to the median to begin the demolition and reconstruction of the Eastbound bridge. The on-ramps from Rte 18 North to I-195 East and Washburn Street to I-195 East will be closed and traffic detoured via Coggeshall Street, Howland Road, Alden Road, Bridge Street and Rte 240. Real time work zone traffic management boards will be activated to inform motorists of current traffic. The boards will be located on I-195 East, Rt. 140 South and Rt. 6 East.

Monday, April 8, 6 a.m. – Traffic will be restored to two lanes Eastbound in time for the Monday morning commute.

Friday, April 12 thru Monday, April 15 – Weather permitting, the same sequence as above will complete the remainder of Eastbound work.

The bridge deck replacement on I-195 Westbound is already complete- performed in just one weekend instead of two.
