The Massachusetts Department of Transportation on Monday said the bridge which carries Robertson Street over I-93 in Quincy will be reduced to one lane of travel beginning Tuesday, March 12, as part of the ongoing $3.8 million bridge replacement project.
The bridge will remain in the one lane configuration throughout the duration of this project, which is expected to be completed in spring 2021.
Future traffic impacts also included nightly temporary lane closures on I-93 and closures of Robertson Street to facilitate bridge demolition operations, and these impacts are currently expected to take place later this spring. More information regarding these impacts will be provided as construction details are finalized.
The existing bridge was constructed in 1958 and is currently safe for travel but is in poor condition. The full scope of work for this project includes removing and replacing the existing bridge structure, installing a bicycle lane, improving sidewalks and wheelchair ramps, and resurfacing the roadway.
MassDOT encourages the public to be mindful of these impacts. Those traveling through the area should reduce speed and use caution. These operations are weather dependent and subject to change without notice.
