All Travel Lanes Reopened on Bourne Bridge

BOURNE – Lane restrictions over the Bourne Bridge were removed today and all travel lanes over the span are open.

Maintenance work over the bridge had limited travel to just one lane in each direction beginning on March 25.

The project included the replacement of bridge joints on the roadway, repair of deteriorated steel and concrete and the patching of damaged pavement surfaces.

Crews also replaced waterproof membranes and performed maintenance work on bridge lighting and drainage systems.

The work had been scheduled to last up until Memorial Day Weekend.

According to Bourne State Police, work may continue on the pedestrian sidewalk as needed, but that work would not impact travel lanes.

The work on the bridge was postponed from last fall to this spring after an outcry from local business and tourism officials.

They asked for the delay after the Sagamore was reduced to one lane in the spring of 2018 and wanted to avoid both shoulder tourism seasons in one year being impacted by bridge repair work.
