All traffic (northbound and southbound) has been shifted onto the new bridge structure, with two available lanes of traffic in both directions.
Punchlist work requiring lane closures for northbound and southbound traffic will continue. Please follow advanced warning signs.
The speed limit on Route 30 near the work zone has been reduced to 40 mph. Project-related truck activity on Route 30 will continue. Route 30 may be reduced to a single lane intermittently, with flaggers regulating traffic within the work zone.
The West River Trail is open. There are intersections between construction access and the trail path, and users should exercise extreme caution at these intersections. As an additional safety precaution, users of the West River Trail are reminded to keep pets on a leash in this area.
The FINAL trail talk for the community will be held on Tuesday,September 12, 2017. Interested participants should meet the PCL+FIGG Team at the West River Trail trailhead at 8 a.m. and the talk will begin at 8:15 a.m. This will be the last trail talk for the community to ask the project’s contractor and bridge designer questions about the project. We hope you will join us!
Please focus on safety when driving through the construction work zone and remember that it is now against the law for drivers to use a hand-held cell phone.
