Needham Street Bridge Construction on hold for winter.
Needham Street is reduced to a single lane with traffic signals alternating east and west traffic flow. Backups may occur, especially during rush hours.
The remaining construction items are weather dependent. Construction will resume in early spring 2017.
MassDOT is replacing the Needham Street bridge over the Great Ditch with an 84-foot bridge, including a new sidewalk and improved lighting.
Construction is expected to continue until summer 2017.
