Tobin Bridge from Chelsea, August 13, 2010The third year of the Tobin Bridge preservation project is set to begin in April, with lane restrictions in place through fall 2014.

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.
