Shrewsbury – The Mass. Department of Transportation (MassDOT) has issued this traffic advisory:

Traffic will be restricted from the right, westbound travel lane (Shrewsbury to Worcester) of the Burns Memorial Bridge, which carries Route 9 over Lake Quinsigamond, until further notice.

As part of MassDOT's routine inspection process, a crack was discovered today in one of the existing bridge members. One westbound travel lane will remain closed for safety reasons until the necessary repair work is completed. The bridge will remain open for travel with two eastbound lanes and one westbound lane available.

The Burns Bridge Replacement is part of the $3 billion Patrick Accelerated Bridge Program, which restores, repairs or replaces structurally deficient bridges across the commonwealth of Massachusetts. The Burns Bridge project includes the complete replacement of the bridge substructure, superstructure and deck.? For more information, please visit www.mass.gov/massdot/kenburnsbridge .
