Fore River Bridge, Quincy, June 4, 2013Construction continues in June on the Fore River Bridge Replacement Project with installation of the permanent replacement bridge foundation components.

Current work includes installation of the drilled shafts associated with the new bridge's towers. Permanent drilled shaft casings for the Quincy tower have been completed with remaining casings for the Weymouth tower being installed.

The photograph shows the first concrete placement at the permanent drilled shafts for the Quincy tower.

Area residents are reminded that worker parking has been provided in the Fore River shipyard or elsewhere within the MassDOT right-of-way or easements, in order to avoid any impact on public streets now or at any point during the project.

The Fore River Bridge Replacement is part of the Patrick-Murray Administration's Accelerated Bridge Program to repair or replace structurally deficient bridges across the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. The Fore River Bridge project includes the complete replacement and eventual removal of the existing temporary span. The project now underway is scheduled for completion in 2016.

For more information, we invite you to visit the Fore River Bridge project website.
