Water Street Bridge- Restrictions in Effect

Due to structural issues on the Water Street Bridge that carries traffic over Boulder Drive and the railroad tracks, MassDOT is implementing restrictions including narrower travel lanes and load limits. Beginning January 30 (January 31 if it rains) after 8 PM, barriers will be placed along the travel lanes, narrowing the lanes. Although the lanes will be narrower, all lanes will remain open to traffic, except during the two-night installation process.
The bridge will be posted with the following load limits:
*** 2 axles: 20 tons
*** 3 axles: 25 tons
*** 5 axles: 36 tons
Structural repairs are also being made by MassDOT. These measures will allow the bridge to remain in service until it is replaced. Design of a new bridge is underway and construction is scheduled to begin in 2021.
