Sagamore Bridge will be limited to one lane in each direction starting Tuesday


After Columbus Day, starting on Oct. 14, the Sagamore Bridge will be restricted to one lane in each direction daily from 8 am to 4:30 pm. Additionally, lane closures may be possible on weekends, if needed by the contractor team to complete the bridge work. All travel lanes will be open each night.

Workers will begin to dismantle and remove the access platforms and the containment system that were needed on the bridge painting project. This schedule will last to about the end of December when work and cleanup are scheduled to be completed. Motorists should consider avoiding peak travel periods or seeking alternate routes to avoid delays, according to the Army Corps of Engineers.
