If it seems like the Rockland St. bridge is the most lovingly tended project in town, that perception would be correct. Back in 2012, the bridge underwent a major renovation. After a couple of delays in opening (one due to a damaged gas main), the bridge reopened in January 2013.
So far in 2014, the attention-seeking bridge required that one lane of bridge traffic be closed in January on weekdays. Currently, the lane from Washington St. to Rockland/Linden St. will officially remain closed on week days throughout March from 9 am – 3 pm, but traffic was flowing freely in both directions today when we drove by at 2 pm.
