This $41.6 million project involves repairing a section of the deck of the Tobin Bridge, which carries Route 1 traffic between the Charlestown neighborhood of Boston and Chelsea. The project will occur on a section of the bridge known as the “approach spans” in Chelsea, and will consist of resurfacing parts of Route 1 southbound (the upper deck) and the Everett Avenue ramp, and making structural repairs and resurfacing parts of Route 1 northbound (the lower deck) and the Beacon Street ramp.
Construction operations are scheduled to begin by spring 2018 and work is currently expected to be completed by the end of 2020. During the spring, summer, and fall construction seasons of this project, one lane of Route 1 north will be closed at all times in this area to allow for construction operations. During this project, there will also be overnight lane closures on Route 1 south to allow for milling and paving work as needed.
