Quincy: Fore River bridge overnight construction to begin

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.

 

 

About David Skill

Dave Skill’s radio career began in the fall of 1964 when he arrived on the campus of Holy Cross College in Worcester, MA. Dave barely got his bags unpacked when he paid a visit to WCHC, the campus radio station. And, before he knew it, he was spending so much time as a disc jockey and news writer/reporter, it seemed like he was majoring in “radio” and minoring in academics at “The Cross”. As you might imagine, his grades reflected it! During his junior and senior years, he also worked weekends in news and as a disc jockey at WNEB, the CBS radio affiliate in Worcester at the time.
