Sagamore Bridge Repairs Finished Month Ahead of Schedule, Bourne Next

BOURNE, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has finished up its repair work on the Sagamore Bridge about a month ahead of schedule.

The bridge spans the Cape Cod Canal and is one of the two land connections to the rest of Massachusetts.

Work began on the Sagamore on April 12, and finished up just about two weeks later on April 25.

Traffic was reduced to only one lane in each direction, causing backups during the work.

The bridges have been targeted by federal lawmakers and the Corps as badly in need of replacement.

The Bourne Bridge is next, and impacts will be similar to the Sagamore. Engineers will work on the bridge 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, until the bridge is repaired. The Corps said work on the Bourne Bridge will be done before Memorial Day weekend.
