The sidewalk demolition as of this week is approximately 1/3 complete and expected to be finished later this month. Full removal of the south sidewalk will allow the relocation of Verizon conduits to begin, followed by construction of the piers that will support the new eastbound bridge.
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.
The $89.9 million Kenneth F. Burns Memorial Bridge Replacement Project is taking place as part of the Patrick-Murray Administration’s historic Accelerated Bridge Program to repair or replace structurally deficient bridges throughout the Commonwealth.
The project will widen the bridge from two to three travel lanes in each direction and include accessible sidewalks and dedicated bicycle lanes on both sides of the bridge. To learn more, visit www.mass.gov/massdot/kenburnsbridge.
