Route 79 Braga Bridge, Fall RiverMassDOT’s Route 79/Braga Bridge Improvements Project in Fall River moves forward in spring 2016. As part of the project, a portion of Central Street will close beginning on May 2 as crews reconfigure the roadway.

Central Street, between Davol Street/Route 79 and Pond Street, will be closed for two weeks as crews reconstruct the road for its final configuration.

Motorists should use the Water Street Connector from Route 79/138 to access Ponta Delgada Boulevard. Drivers should turn right for Water Street/Canal Street. Motorists should follow Battleship Cove Area signs to get access to the waterfront. Drivers traveling through the affected area should expect delays and use caution or seek alternate routes to avoid delays.

Access to area attractions, businesses and nearby properties will continue during roadwork. The schedule for this major infrastructure project is weather dependent and subject to change without notice.

For more information, visit the project website. For questions or to report issues related to construction, please call the project hotline at 781-774-0441 or email route79project@state.ma.us.
