Burns Bridge, August 26, 2013New steel arches are in place and roadway construction underway in late summer as part of the $89 million Kenneth F. Burns Memorial Bridge Replacement Project on Route 9 over Lake Quinsigamond in Worcester and Shrewsbury.

The aerial view at left shows the superstructure of the eastbound side of the replacement bridge, with the horizontal elements on which the new bridge deck will be constructed placed on new steel arches.

The Burns Bridge Replacement Project will replace the current Burns Bridge with a new steel deck arch bridge, with completion in 2016. The project is a signature initiative of the Patrick Administration’s’ historic Accelerated Bridge Program.

As of the end of August, North Lake Avenue traffic has been shifted to northbound lanes creating two-way opposing traffic.  Upcoming roadway work will include new sidewalks and curbs on South Road and North Lake Avenue.

Upcoming bridge work will include completing installation of structural steel columns and floor beams and continued construction of a retaining wall at the west abutment.  Please follow our progress by visiting the Burns Bridge project website.
