Throughout the week of January 18th, 2016, Barletta Heavy Division (BHD), MassDOT’s contractor for the Route 128 Add-a-Lane Bridge V project, will continue construction operations. Day shift work will be performed project-wide during both the standard working hours of 7:00AM to 3:00PM and during the third shift work hours of 7:00PM to 5:00AM.
At Kendrick Street, work during the day will consist of installing walls and retaining walls. Work will also include excavating the Kendrick pier. Demolition of the existing Kendrick Street bridge deck will continue from Monday, January 18th to Thursday, January 21st during the third shifts.
- At K1, work will focus on forming, pouring and reinforcing the wall barriers and installing underdrainage.
- At Central Avenue, work will be conducted during both the day and third shifts to form, reinforce, and pour the arch.
- Demolition of the eastern side of Route 128/I-95 over Route 9 (northbound towards Washington Street) will continue throughout the week during the day shifts. Work will also include the installation of the retaining wall.
During the demolition operations at Kendrick Street and Route 128/I-95 over Route 9, BHD will be taking lane closures. Lane closures are permitted and are necessary to create a safe work zone; drivers are asked to be aware of possible lane closures for their own safety and that of the project team.
