Route 79 Braga Bridge, Fall RiverMassDOT contractors beginning today as part of the Route 79/Braga Bridge Improvements Project will remove the portion of the elevated Route 79 over the intersection of Anawan Street/Pocasset Street and Davol Street. The work will take place today, Tuesday, April 22 through Friday, April 25. To avoid noise impacts associated with night work, the demolition will take place during the day. Police traffic details will intermittently stop traffic in the immediate vicinity during the work, for no more than 12 minutes at a time.

MassDOT encourages drivers to seek alternate routes to avoid delays. Drivers who must travel through the affected area should expect delays and should reduce speed and use caution while approaching and traveling through the work zone.

For more information on the project, visit the website at www.mass.gov/massdot/route79project. For questions or to report issues related to construction, please call the project hotline, 781-774-0441 or email route79project@state.ma.us.
