BOURNE, Mass. (AP) — Commuters worried about back-to-school traffic on a Cape Cod bridge can breathe a sigh of relief.
Transportation officials say Tuesday that work on the Bourne Bridge originally planned for the fall of 2018 will be shifted into next year.
The maintenance work on the bridge was expected to take several weeks but will instead be done in off-peak travel hours.
The Cape Cod Times reports the New England District of U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, which controls the bridges, and the state’s Department of Transportation have signed an agreement to continue talks about inspection and maintenance of the Bourne and Sagamore bridges.
