Work Starts On Bourne Bridge

After fixing up the Sagamore Bridge, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is now working on Cape Cod's other bridge.

Maintenance work on the Bourne Bridge starts Monday and is expected to continue until December.

The work on the bridge's deck will limit traffic to one lane in each direction between 7 p.m. and 5:30 a.m. on weekdays for one or two weeks.

Traffic will be limited to one lane in each direction for 24 hours beginning on Oct. 12 during waterproofing and repaving work.

The Corps says to expect traffic backups during the morning and evening commutes. Wide loads will be barred from the bridge during repairs.

Work on the Sagamore Bridge ended in May.
