Starting today, construction crews will begin working around-the-clock on the new Fore River Bridge.
Tonight a new third shift of workers will start to install the foundation of a ramp on the Quincy side of the Fore River.
State transportation officials say the overnight shift will go from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. with its work expected to be completed by June 7.
To avoid disruption to nearby residents, contractors will use a noise-blocking curtain and also monitor noise levels during the night shifts.
The bridge will still be open to traffic during the night work, but drivers should expect overnight lane restrictions.
The new Fore River Bridge has a $244 million price tag, but is expected to last at least 75 years.
