The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has announced lane restrictions for the Bourne Bridge over the Cape Cod Canal in Bourne beginning next week and continuing through early December 2010. The restrictions will be in place to allow bridge deck repairs and paving.
Starting on Monday, Sept. 20, weather permitting, night work will be conducted on the bridge from 7 p.m. to 5:30 a.m. weekdays only. Traffic will be limited to one lane in each direction during the night work. This will take place for one or two weeks.
Starting on Tuesday, Oct. 12 at 10 a.m., weather permitting, travel restrictions will be put in place 24-hours a day, 7-days a week. At this time, travel over the Bourne Bridge will be reduced from two lanes in each direction to ONE LANE IN EACH DIRECTION. Motorists planning to use the Bourne Bridge during this period should expect travel delays during the morning and afternoon peak travel periods each day. This schedule will continue until the project is completed in early December 2010.
During the repairs, no wide loads will be permitted to cross the span, and state and local police will be on duty at all times work is being performed to assist the motoring public.
Message boards, located at both approaches to the Bourne Bridge, will keep motorists advised of work efforts. Also, fixed signage will be installed at all approach roads to the Bourne Bridge, alerting motorists to the bridge work and associated travel restrictions. Check the Army Corps Cape Cod Canal website for the work status, lane shifts, and other schedule changes.
