Army Corps of Engineers to resume Sagamore Bridge work in March

Work to begin again as early as next month if weather allows

The New England District of the US Army Corps of Engineers announced Wednesday that work on the Sagamore Bridge may resume as early as March. Weather will be the deciding factor for the restart date on the bridge deck repairs.

As it was this past Fall, only one lane of traffic in each direction will be open and no wide loads will be allowed over the bridge. Lane restrictions will be in place 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The Corps is looking to complete the project by late Spring.

During the Fall months, work on the bridge created headaches for on and off Cape travelers and prompted letters from local politicians and questions from local chambers, residents and businesses.  In November, MassDOT announced the creation of the Cape Cod Canal Area Traffic Task Force to address the delays and congestion brought about by bridge work.

Bridge work updates will be made available on the USACE's website and also via their Facebook and Twitter pages.
