MassDOT recently notified the Town of Concord that the bridge closure and associated detour will be in place from Saturday 10/26/2013 to approximately Sunday December 1, 2013. This revised schedule aligns with maintenance activities being completed by Mass Bay Commuter Rail on the railroad line which will shut down train operations on Saturdays and Sundays for the next several weekends. MassDOT feels that it will be far less disturbing than the overnight shifts that were originally anticipated for next season. By starting the work this fall and working longer daytime shifts, MassDOT is also hoping to reduce the need for overnight work shifts next Spring. After December 1, 2013 the detour will be removed and the bridge will be opened to traffic until work resumes in the Spring of 2014.
The anticipated hours of operation for the bridge repair work will be on Saturdays and Sundays from 6:30am to 4:30pm. This repair work may generate some construction related noise for local residents. If you have any questions, please contact MassDOT (781-641-8300) or the Engineering Division of Concord Public Works (978-318-3210).
