The demolition will take place at night from approximately 9:00 p.m. to 6:30 a.m. to avoid disrupting peak commuter traffic and will be completed in early September.
Beginning the week of August 13 through the week of September 3rd, eastbound lanes from Worcester to Shrewsbury will close. One eastbound lane will close at approximately 9:00 p.m. Later in the evening, all eastbound traffic will be shifted to the westbound lanes of the bridge at the intersection of Route 9/Lake Avenue and returned to the Route 9 eastbound lanes at the Route 9/Quinsigamond Avenue intersection.
MassDOT recommends that drivers plan ahead and allow extra time through the work zone. Drivers are reminded to reduce speed and exercise caution when traveling through the site.
Because of the south sidewalk closure, upgrades to crosswalks, sidewalks, wheelchair ramps and pedestrian signals will be made at the Lake Avenue/Belmont Street intersection. The Worcester RTA beginning on August 13 will provide a shuttle bus service three times a week for senior citizens between Lincoln Park Towers and the White City Shopping Plaza.
The Kenneth F. Burns Memorial Bridge Replacement Project is taking place under the Patrick-Murray Administration’s historic Accelerated Bridge Program to repair or replace structurally deficient bridges throughout the Commonwealth. To learn more, visit www.mass.gov/massdot/kenburnsbridge.
