HARVARD — Notice that work has begun on the Ayer Road bridge passing over Route 2 has been received.
It’s been going on for a few weeks now and MassDOT says that work should wrap in the early fall.
Spokesman Michael Verseckes said on Monday that the Route 110/111 bridge over Route 2 in Harvard was restricted to two lanes, one lane in each direction. Those lane closures occurred on March 13.
“The traffic was pushed toward the curb lines and away from the median where the last bridge inspection indicated one of the steel beam ends in the center of the bridge had experienced some deterioration,” said Verseckes.
Jersey barriers channel east and westbound traffic to the outermost lanes atop the bridge structure. “The contractor began mobilizing about 10 days ago,” said Verseckes.
“The work is expected to last for about 10 weeks. After the repairs are made, the restrictions will be lifted, and vehicles will have full use of the bridge.”
