Medford I-93 1st Weekend Complete, June 5, 2011 The first I-93 rapid bridge superstructure replacements in Medford as part of the 93Fast14 project were completed successfully and well ahead of schedule late Sunday, June 5. 

The first location on I-93 north over Riverside Avenue is seen at left as of 7:00pm Sunday, with the new superstructure in place and being prepared to reopen to traffic.  A permanent barrier to replace the temporary barriers seen at the location will be completed in the coming weeks.

I-93 was completely reopened to traffic just before 10:00 PM, seven hours ahead of schedule.

During the upcoming weekend of June 10-13, two bridge superstructures will be replaced carrying I-93 northbound over Salem Street/Route 60.  At 8:00 PM on June 10, northbound traffic on I-93 will cross over onto the opposite side of the highway.  Both roads will fully reopen at 5:00 AM on Monday, June 13.

As the 93Fast14 project continues on weekends in June, July and August except for the July 4th weekend, MassDOT strongly advises drivers to plan their travel routes and times carefully and to use alternate routes or public transportation to avoid this area if possible.  MassDOT recommends drivers that do not have a destination in the Medford/Downtown Boston area use alternate routes [I-495, I-95 (Route 128), Route 1 and I-90] to avoid the construction area.

The $98.1 million project to replace the fourteen bridge superstructures in Medford is funded through the Patrick-Murray Administration’s historic Accelerated Bridge Program to reduce the Commonwealth’s backlog of structurally-deficient bridges.
