We know that this extended closure of the bridge is an inconvenience, but making all the necessary repairs while the contractor is on site is in the best interests of public safety.

The contractor has crews working two shifts per day, to ensure that work is completed as quickly as possible. We recognize that this type of work is disruptive. Pedestrians wishing to access Glen Road area can do so by taking the bridge at Sherbourne Street. Your patience during the construction is appreciated.

 

Construction Details:
The emergency bridge work involves repairing the rail and structural steel bracing of the bridge.

Work Hours:
Work will typically take place from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m., Monday to Friday, and from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. on weekends. This project will require periods of overnight work and extended weekend hours.

Disruptions:
As with all construction projects, there will be noise and temporary inconveniences. In order to complete the work effectively and in a safe manner, some pedestrian and traffic restrictions will be necessary.
