Northbound I-91 traffic has been relocated onto the southbound bridge. Traffic will remain reduced to one lane in each direction on I-91 until completion of the new bridge in the Fall of 2015.
Night work on the existing I-91 bridge will begin on Sunday night, November 17th and will continue through Friday morning, November 22nd. Night work will continue Sunday through Thursday nights for the next several months, until demolition is complete.
The speed limit on Route 30 near the work zone has been reduced to 40 mph. This reduction will remain in effect through the Fall of 2015.
Truck activity on Route 30 will continue for the week of November 17th. Route 30 will be reduced to a single lane intermittently; when this occurs, flaggers will regulate traffic flow.
Upper Dummerston Road
No project impacts to Upper Dummerston Road are anticipated for the week of November 17th.
West River Trail
Overhead utility relocation will be completed the week of November 17th, and will be followed by excavation of the bridge foundation near the trail. The trail from the Marina Trailhead to the I-91 bridges will be closed for the week of November 17th and the following week; however, it will be open over the weekend.
Signage at the Marina Trailhead and Rice Farm Road Trailhead will indicate current trail status. In addition, we will keep the project’s website www.i91brattleborobridge.com up-to-date on the current status of the trail. The Trail is open from the northern trailhead to a point just north of the bridge construction area. The northern trailhead access location is on Rice Farm Road, about a mile south of the Iron Bridge.
Overhead demolition activities will begin the week of November 17th on the existing northbound bridge. Buoys and rope will be placed in the West River to keep boaters away from overhead activities.
