Work on the project will take place on one side of the road at a time, and a minimum of two lanes for traffic will be maintained during construction. Work on the easterly side of the bridge will be accomplished first, followed by work on the westerly side.
Project work will include the following: Retrofit of approach guardrails, bridge railing transitions, stone parapet wall improvements, replacement of sidewalk panels, milling and overlaying pavement in the immediate area of the bridge and other incidental work. The work will be accomplished by R. Bates & Sons, Inc., under the direction of the city of Newton and the Town of Wellesley. Also, as part of the project, National Grid will be relocating a gas main in the bridge area.
