Project Description:
WEYMOUTH- ABINGTON- RECONSTRUCTION & WIDENING ON ROUTE 18 (MAIN STREET) FROM HIGHLAND PLACE TO ROUTE 139 (4.0 MILES) INCLUDES REPLACING W-32-013, ROUTE 18 OVER THE OLD COLONY RAILROAD (MBTA)
The proposed project consists of reconstructing and widening Route 18 from Highland Place in Weymouth to Route 139 in Abington including the replacement of Bridge W-32-13 over the MBTA. The roadway widening will provide an additional travel lane in each direction. A temporary alignment will be constructed adjacent to the bridge to the east to carry Route 18 traffic while the existing bridge is being replaced. A long three day weekend shutdown of MBTA service and detour of Route 18 traffic will be required to slide the new bridge superstructure onto the final bridge supports. The proposed roadway cross section consists of four 11.5 travel lanes, two 5 shoulders and two 5.5 sidewalks. Shared accommodations for all users have been provided in accordance with applicable guidelines.
