The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers says deck repairs and paving on the Sagamore Bridge spanning the Cape Cod Canal are scheduled to restart as soon as March 1 and continue until late spring 2010. One third of the roadway width was completed last fall with the remaining two-thirds planned to be completed this spring.
The Corps says travel restrictions will begin, weather permitting, as soon as Monday, March 1st at 10 a.m. and continue through late Spring. Travel restrictions will stay in place 24-hours a day, 7- days a week. Motorists planning to use the Sagamore Bridge during this period should be aware that travel delays are likely to occur during the morning and afternoon peak travel periods each day.
The Army Corps and Canal Area Regional Traffic Task Force worked with MassDOT during the winter to coordinate construction activities and minimize congestion and inconvenience in order to complete work prior to peak traffic season. The work consists of removing existing pavement and installation of a new asphalt pavement surface on the Sagamore Bridge. The Bridge deck was last repaired 29 years ago.
