Update on Howe St. Bridge Repairs:
Per MassDOT, work to stabilize the damaged beam is essentially complete and traffic on Route 213 East Bound was fully restored early this morning. As part of the bridge stabilization, a temporary beam was placed on the top side of the bridge. There is a temporary barrier system installed as well to protect the beam from traffic. Please use caution when traveling over the bridge and follow all signs, pavement markings and traffic patterns.
Permanent repairs to the bridge will require design and material fabrication that will likely push that work into the early fall.
