Good morning,

In order to set the beams for the Pawtucket Street over Northern Canal TIGER bridge project, Father Morissette Boulevard will be closed between Aiken Street and University Avenue from 6pm on Thursday April 25th through 7am Friday April 26th, 2019. During this time, the bridge will be closed for the duration of the work to Vehicular Traffic and Pedestrian Traffic will be limited during times of overhead hazard.

Four (4) police details will be utilized during the steel erection process. There will be one each, stationed at each end of Father Morissette Blvd. where the closure begins. There will also be a police officer at each end of the bridge. Pedestrian traffic across the bridge will be maintained open overnight. At the time of setting each beam, the pedestrians will be stopped off the bridge until it is deemed that there is no overhead hazard and each beam is set in place.

Best efforts will be made to limit noise and lighting disruptions to the surrounding community during this time. The detour onto Aiken Street and Merrimack Street will be well-marked and have LPD details.

The City of Lowell appreciates your patience during this construction project. Drivers should expect delays, and be prepared to stop and proceed slowly through the detour route. The City reminds everyone to please drive safely.

Natasha Vance, PE, Transportation Engineer
