Beginning on the evening of Monday, May 19, a third shift will be added to the Fore River Bridge replacement project. The third shift will run 6:00PM to 6:00AM putting the project into 24-hour operation. A third shift is being introduced to install the micro-piles associated with the foundations of the Quincy approach to the new bridge. To ensure that these micro-piles can be installed without impacting commuting traffic, work will take place overnight and work crews associated with the installation will be off the road by 4:30AM. It is anticipated that the current third shift will last until approximately the 7th of June.
Throughout the installation of the micro-piles, noise monitoring will be in effect and a noise blocking curtain in place. Noise levels will be below the first and second shifts. Motorists moving through the area during the overnight hours may experience lane restrictions but the bridge will remain open to traffic.
For immediate questions or concerns regarding third shift or any other construction activities at the Fore River Bridge site, please call 617-504-2924. This telephone number is operated by a member of the White-Skanska design/build team and is live at all times when construction activities are underway. All comments and questions are logged and reviewed weekly by MassDOT.
Motorists are reminded that during this phase of construction, bridge openings associated with the passage of ships and maintenance of the temporary span will continue as normal. Replacement of the Fore River Bridge is taking place under the Commonwealth’s historic Accelerated Bridge Program to repair or replace structurally deficient bridges across Massachusetts. More information about the Fore River Bridge Replacement Project can be found at www.mass.gov/massdot/foreriverbridge.
