Southbound Traffic Shift Notice
The first of two traffic shifts began Friday, December 11, 2020. Southbound traffic was shifted to the northbound lanes beginning just before the bridge. One lane in the northbound and southbound directions will carry traffic across the bridge. The northbound traffic shift will take place once the work activities are complete on the southbound bridge. Each traffic shift is expected to be in place for two months.
This work requires a temporarily deviation from drawbridge operation. From November 16, 2020 through March 31, 2021, the Christa McAuliffe Drawbridge will operate under the following conditions: 6 a.m.-8 a.m. & 3 p.m.-6 p.m. no openings will be allowed. At all other times the drawbridge will open every 30 minutes, if there is a vessel needing passage.
