The Boston Transportation Department is advising drivers that lane reductions will be in effect on the North Washington Street Bridge from 7 PM, Wednesday, October 25, through 5 AM, Thursday, October 26, to allow for necessary bridge repairs.

Inbound travel lanes will be closed to all traffic, and inbound and outbound traffic will both be maintained using existing outbound travel lanes.  Traffic delays are expected and drivers are encouraged to seek alternate routes.

The Boston Public Works Department is planning for the future complete reconstruction of the North Washington Street Bridge.  Interim repairs were addressed last evening and will continue to be addressed as needed to ensure safety and access prior to construction.   Normal bridge operation will be in place for the Thursday morning commute.
