Repairs on the Bourne Bridge spanning the Cape Cod Canal in Bourne, Mass., were completed Wednesday, Nov. 17 at 11 a.m. and the bridge has now been fully re-opened to its normal four lanes of traffic, according to U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New England District officials.
Due to the diligence and hard work of the Corps of Engineers construction contractor, R. Zoppo Corporation, of Stoughton, Mass., the project was completed earlier than planned. Although there were some weather delays during the project they did not prove to be significant.
Work consisted of removal of the old waterproofing and pavement to the bridge deck, and the reinstallation of pavement/waterproofing. These pavement/waterproofing repairs are essential to protecting the underlying steel/concrete grid deck in order to maintain the structural integrity and safety of the bridge.
The entire project for deck repairs and paving of the Bourne and Sagamore bridges is now complete.
