CBB Lane Closures Continue Until Nov.
One lane will be closed in each direction most Saturdays at the Cross Bay Veterans Memorial Bridge for work related to the $17 million project to rehabilitate the concrete piers beneath the bridge.
The Saturday lane closures, which began July 28, will take place between 6 a.m. and 4 p.m. and continue through November. One lane in each direction had previously been closed on weekdays, between 7 a.m. and 6:30 p.m., to accommodate equipment being used as part of the repair work, and will continue through November as well.
Currently, two northbound lanes into Broad Channel are closed Monday through Thursday between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. and on Fridays between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. while heavy cranes, fitted with 4-to-6-foot wide stabilizing bars, are used to lower materials to the work area near the bridge’s north abutment.
This part of the project, which is dependent on good weather, is expected to be completed in late August. The entire project, which includes excising and repairing damaged concrete and shoring up materials that protect the bridge’s concrete abutment, is expected to be completed in November 2013.
