IMG_1409The work to replace the Route 2 Bridges over I-95 in Lexington has reached a new milestone in December.

The first concrete has been poured for the new Eastbound bridge center pier columns. In the foreground at left, concrete for the footing of the west abutment is curing under tarps.

The Route 2/I-95 Bridge Replacement Project will replace the existing bridges carrying Route 2 east and westbound over I-95 in Lexington, also called the Concord Turnpike. Construction is scheduled for completion in fall 2016.

Overnight single and double lane closures on I-95 North and South between Exit 28 and Exit 30 are implemented as necessary for overnight construction. All lanes will reopen at 5:00 AM each weekday morning for peak commuting hours.
