Longfellow Bridge RenderingMassDOT contractors for the Longfellow Bridge Rehabilitation Project will temporarily perform overnight demolition work beginning on Monday, February 2, 2015. This schedule will be in place for four to six weeks. The work hours are from 11:00 PM to 7:00 AM.

During the work, two travel lanes on Storrow Drive east and westbound will be closed between 11:00 PM and 5:00 AM. These lane closures are prohibited between 5:00 AM and 11:00 PM, necessitating the overnight work, which will be located on Spans 1 and 2 of the bridge over Storrow Drive east and westbound.

Activities during these work hours will include localized demolition of the concrete deck, including jack hammering and saw cutting, and removal of steel columns. Noise levels will be monitored during the work. Contractors will implement appropriate noise control measures as needed. Pedestrian, bicyclist and vehicular travel across the bridge will be maintained in the current configuration.

The three and half year rehabilitation project will address the bridge’s structural deficiencies, upgrade its structural capacity and bring it up to modern code, including improving multi-modal access and bridge-to-city-street connections to meet accessibility guidelines. The repairs and modifications will be consistent with the historic character of the bridge and comply with environmental standards.
