MassDOT last weekend completed the rapid bridge construction replacement of bridge decks that carry I-195 over River Avenue in Fairhaven near the New Bedford line. The bridge deck replacement during weekends only was completed ahead of the original accelerated schedule.
The bridge deck paving operation on the eastbound side completed on Sunday, April 14 can be seen, left.
The rapid bridge construction technique using eight prefabricated bridge units allowed MassDOT to limit traffic disruptions and replace the deteriorated bridge decks before the busy spring and summer travel season begins.
With the bridge deck construction completed, final project steps include removal of median crossover and existing median decks and final paving on I-195 and River Ave. The remaining work schedule will avoid the morning and evening commuter rush, and final completion is scheduled for mid-June.
