Lowell Bridge Bundle Woburn Street Bridge Demolition 2010 Beginning on Monday, May 2, construction crews working on the I-495 Lowell Bridge Bundle will demolish the last half of the bridge carrying the southbound lanes of I-495 over Woburn Street, with most of the work taking place over the night of Monday the 2nd. 

During this overnight operation Woburn Street beneath the bridge will be closed but the work zone configured to allow emergency vehicle access if required.  Overnight demolition work on the Woburn Street bridge from 2010 is seen at left.

Construction crews will complete the work with noise associated into a single night to minimize the impacts on the neighborhood surrounding Woburn Street.

The replacement of the six bridges in the I-495 Lowell Bridge Bundle is taking place under the Patrick Administration’s historic Accelerated Bridge Program to repair deficient bridges throughout the state.
