The Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) has announced that the Granite Avenue Drawbridge (including the on and off ramp at exit 11 on 93) will be closed to all vehicular traffic from Friday, October 23rd at 8:00pm until Monday, October 26th at 5:00am to establish temporary work zones to support steel beam replacement on the Granite Avenue Bridge over the Neponset River. All lanes will be open to traffic by Monday, October 26th at 5:00am.
Local business will be allowed access to their respective Parking Lots, but not able to travel over the bridge during this shutdown period.
In order to allow crews to safely and effectively conduct this operation, a detour will be implemented. Appropriate signage, law enforcement details, and advanced message boards will be in place to guide drivers through the work area.
Drivers who are traveling through the area should reduce speed and use caution.
