The purpose of the Route 79/Braga Bridge Improvements Project is to enhance safety and access along the Route 79 corridor and the interchange with I-195 and bring the roadway and bridges up to current standards. MassDOT is removing the elevated section of Route 79 and building a new surface roadway to connect with Davol Street and the waterfront; rebuilding the nine “spaghetti ramps” connecting Route 79 and I-195; constructing two new roadways to connect with the waterfront; repairing, cleaning and painting the Braga Bridge; and enhancing pedestrian and bicycle accommodations.
