Noise Advisory for Longfellow Bridge Construction

The Massachusetts Department of Transportation’s (MassDOT) design/build contractor for the Longfellow Bridge Rehabilitation Project, White-Skanska-Consigli (WSC), will temporarily perform demolition work during the first and second shifts beginning on Monday, January 5, 2015.
This schedule will be in place for four to six weeks. The first shift work hours are from 7:00 AM to 3:00 PM and second shift work hours are from 3:00 PM to 11:00 PM. Activities that could generate unusually loud noise, such as jack hammering, will be restricted to before 10:00 PM. The first shift demolition is being added to accelerate the work and minimize nighttime noise impacts.

Activities during these work hours will include localized demolition of the concrete deck and removal of steel columns. Second shift work during this period of time will be located over the water toward the Boston side of the bridge. Noise levels will be monitored to ensure they do not exceed allowable levels, and WSC will implement appropriate noise control measures as needed. Pedestrian, bicyclist and vehicular travel across the bridge will be maintained in the current Stage 1 configuration.
