The beginning stages of work will require daily lane closures on the upper and lower decks of the bridge during off-peak hours. Permanent lane restrictions will take effect in approximately two weeks in mid-April, weather permitting. As in the previous two years of the project, the lane restrictions will remain in effect through the fall of 2014.
This is the third year of a three-year, $44.8 million bridge preservation project. MassDOT’s contractor is Liberty-Alpha Joint Venture. To learn more about the project, we invite you to visit the Tobin Project website.
