Below is the construction look ahead for the North Washington Street Bridge Replacement Project as provided by the Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT).
Temporary Bridge Construction:
Driving of bent supports for the temporary roadway bridge continues along with construction of supports to carry utilities over a temporary utility bridge. One of the bridge bent supports is being installed in Paul Revere Park behind the Tudor Wharf walkway and requires daily 7 a.m. – 3 p.m. closures of the walkway and playground. More details are available on the project website.
Work Hours: Daytime (7 a.m. to 6 p.m.) on weekdays.
Travel Impacts: On weekdays during off-peak daytime hours (10 a.m. to 2 p.m.), the inbound right lane will be closed to create a work zone to support pile driving. During the Tudor Wharf walkway closures, pedestrian access will be provided via the Water Street underpass and guidance signage will be provided.
Utility Installation and Upgrades:
Installation of MBTA conduits and water line at the south end of the bridge at Keany Square on weekdays by J.F. White will continue. Utility relocation and upgrades by Eversource will continue on weekdays at the north end of the bridge at City Square.
Work Hours: Daytime (7 a.m. to 2 p.m.) on weekdays.
Travel Impacts: During off-peak hours, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on weekdays, inbound traffic will be reduced to one lane at the Keany Square intersection to allow for MBTA conduit installation. During off-peak hours, from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. on weekdays, outbound traffic will be reduced to one lane at the Keany Square intersection to allow for MBTA conduit installation and one lane at the Eversource work zone approaching the City Square intersection. All turn movements will be maintained, with two inbound lanes available during the morning peak hours.
