To continue construction operations on the Route 18 Bridge, MassDOT will implement two weekends of overnight work starting at 11:30 PM on Friday, August 12 through 4:00 AM on Saturday, August 13 and 10:30 PM on Sunday, August 14 through 4:00 AM on Monday, August 15.
Work will resume the following weekend from 11:30 PM on Friday, August 19 through 4:00 AM on Saturday, August 20 and 10:30 PM on Sunday, August 21 through 4:00 AM on Monday, August 22.
During both weekends, through vehicle, pedestrian and bicycle travel will be detoured using Pond Street. Local access to homes and businesses on either side of the bridge will be maintained. Police details will be present to ensure safe travel. Advance signage will be in place, including for the detour route.
MassDOT encourages drivers to avoid the area and seek alternate routes to minimize delays. Those traveling through the area should expect delays and should reduce speed and use caution.
The schedule for this major infrastructure project is weather dependent and subject to change without notice.
