MassDOT's three week, around-the-clock repairs of the New Bedford-Fairhaven Bridge that began on March 4 with the temporary closing of the bridge are moving into final stages. The drawbridge is scheduled to reopen on schedule Sunday evening, March 25.
The critical repairs included electrical upgrades, among them urgent transformer and motor repairs. The full three-week bridge closure and 24/7 work schedule have allowed the upgrades to proceed as quickly as possible and reopen the bridge prior to the busiest part of the tourist season. Posted Route 6 detours have been in place during the construction.
The work included installation of a new 480-volt transformer and the replacement of the bridge’s 14 motors. Steps taken late this week also included maintenance-related painting of bridge steel and electrical inspection by the City of New Bedford.
