Longfellow Bridge RenderingMassDOT is providing an update regarding upcoming construction work as part of the Longfellow Bridge Rehabilitation Project.

Contractor White-Skanska-Consigli will temporarily perform demolition work during the first and second shifts beginning on Monday, January 5, 2015. This schedule will be in place for four to six weeks. The first shift work hours are from 7:00 AM to 3:00 PM and second shift work hours are from 3:00 PM to 11:00 PM. Activities that could generate unusually loud noise, such as jack hammering, will be performed prior to 10:00 PM. The first shift demolition is being added to accelerate the work and minimize nighttime noise impacts.

Activities during these work hours will include localized demolition of the concrete deck and removal of steel columns. Second shift work during this period of time will be located over the water toward the Boston side of the bridge. Noise levels will be monitored to ensure they do not exceed allowable levels. Appropriate noise control steps will be taken as needed. Pedestrian, bicyclist and vehicular travel across the bridge will be maintained in the current Stage 1 configuration.

The three and half year rehabilitation project will address the bridge’s structural deficiencies, upgrade its structural capacity and bring it up to modern code, including improving multi-modal access and bridge-to-city-street connections to meet accessibility guidelines. The repairs and modifications will be consistent with the historic character of the bridge and comply with environmental standards.
