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 demolition of the western (Charles River side) sidewalk on the bridge near City Square, construction of supports for the temporary utility bridge, and removal of the Revere Park Playground structures to prepare for installation of bridge bents. Work on the bridge above the Tudor Wharf walkway requires some daytime closures of the walkway with pedestrian detours in place.
Work Hours: Daytime (7 a.m. – 6 p.m.) on weekdays and on Saturdays.
Travel Impacts: On weekdays during off-peak daytime hours (10 a.m. – 2 p.m.) and on Saturdays, the inbound right lane will be closed to create a work zone to support pile driving and sidewalk demolition. 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:
At the south end of the bridge at Keany Square, installation of a waterline and conduit at the south end of the bridge at Keany Square by J.F. White and installation of a gas pipe by National Grid.
Work Hours: Daytime (7 a.m. – 3 p.m.) on weekdays. Nighttime (7 p.m. – 6 a.m.) on Thursday, May 16 into Friday, May 17.
Travel Impacts: During off-peak hours (10 a.m. – 2 p.m.) on weekdays and overnight (7 p.m. – 6 a.m.) on May 16 into May 17, inbound traffic will be reduced to one lane at the Keany Square intersection. During off-peak hours (7 a.m. – 2 p.m.) on weekdays and overnight (7 p.m. – 6 a.m.) on May 16 into May 17, outbound traffic will be reduced to one lane at the Keany Square. All turn movements will be maintained, with two inbound lanes available during the morning peak hours.
