Tobin Bridge AerialThe necessary structural maintenance, painting, and cleaning project is now underway by MassDOT's contractor on the Tobin Memorial Bridge connecting Charlestown with Chelsea.

During the painting project beginning this month through approximately November and resuming in spring 2013, the Tobin Bridge will be reduced from three lanes in each direction to two in the area where work is occurring.

One-half of the two outside travel lanes will be restricted using barriers. The remaining area is being striped and marked to provide two full lanes in both directions.

During work, crews are installing shielding throughout the duration of the project to reduce or prevent inconveniences or safety issues for drivers or nearby businesses and residents.

The project is expected to be complete in the fall of 2014.  To learn more, please visit the MassDOT Tobin Bridge project website.
