Curious About Roadwork Delays
Why is it taking so long to repair the Neponset River Bridge when it is a very major route to Boston from the South Shore? Is it politics, revenue? It has been a very, very long time (2 yrs plus??) and although I see workers there, not much has changed. – Kerry, Hingham
I asked the state’s Dept. of Transportation about this project. And even though it might seem like work has been going on for more than 2 years, it’s actually been a little over 1 year. It just seems like forever for drivers who have to navigate the area. And….the bad news….it’s a three and a half year project.
Why does it take so long? Well the DOT says it’s a major project, a full rehab of the old Neponset River Bridge, and they’re doing the work while keeping some of the lanes open.
The only good news I can give you is that the project is on-schedule and on-budget so far.
It always seems like thesse things take ages to finish. What’s the worst construction project you have to navigate right now?
