MassDOT plans to shut the Casey Overpass on Oct. 5 and 6 for emergency repairs to the road surface "to ensure the bridge can remain open during snow and ice events."
And that's just the start. The state says some 17 sections of the overpass, which is slated to be completely be torn down, need repair, and that it will have to be shut for three more weekends as well. Also:
During the closures, MassDOT is intending to remove the existing driving surface with jackhammers. As a result, there will be noise associated with this work. The end result will be an improved riding surface.
The work will be done between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m.
