Maintenance work has begun on the Sagamore Bridge.
The US Army Corps of Engineers New England District said the work will require lane restrictions while the necessary work is underway.
Work to be done includes steel repairs to base structures of light posts, installation of repaired light posts, repairs to the bridge fence and light brackets, and replacement of conduits, cables and light fixtures.
R. Zoppo Corporation of Stoughton will perform the work in phases using multiple shifts to keep the bridge open at all times and complete the work as quickly as possible. The company performed the overhauls of the Sagamore and Bourne bridges in 2018 and 2019, respectively.
Vehicle travel over the bridge will be reduced from the current two lanes in each direction to a single 12-foot lane in each direction. Lane restrictions will be in place 24 hours a day until the project is completed. Repair work and lane restrictions are scheduled to end just before Memorial Day weekend.
Travelers using the Sagamore Bridge should be aware that travel delays are likely to occur during the morning and afternoon peak travel periods each day, the Army Corps said. Signs, traffic control devices and police details will be used at all times that work is being performed on the bridge, the Army Corps said.
