Do you use Route 9 in Wellesley?

Posted February 4, 2009 10:45 PM

If so, your long wait is over.

The ramp from Route 9 west to Route 16 has been re-opened, Wellesley police report.

"Workers have also temporarily repaved the bridge itself and removed a majority of the barriers,'' Wellesley police said in a statement. "This has made the bridge much wider for travel. Temporary pavement markings are also in place. The traffic lights at the ramp have been reactivated as well and will regulate the intersection. These lights were shut off when the ramp was first closed.''

"Work on the bridge has not been completed, however, and the bridge will again be paved when the project is completed sometime this spring.''

Last summer, the state predicted the bridge would be done in the fall.
