Bacon Street Bridge Replacement Work Begins March 26

Updated on March 23, 2021

Bacon Street bridge in Wellesley is being completely replaced.

We're replacing the bridge that carries the Framingham/Worcester Line over Bacon Street in Wellesley. On March 26, crews will begin installing new foundations for the bridge at the track level. Crews will work around the clock through the weekend.

This project will bring the bridge to a State of Good Repair, improving safety, resiliency, and reliability of the Worcester Line.

What to Expect During this Work

Work will begin at 8 PM on Friday, March 26, and continue through 5 AM on Monday, March 29.

Service Impacts

Shuttles will replace train service on the Framingham/Worcester Line all day on Saturday and Sunday.

Neighborhood Impacts

To allow for this work, Bacon Street at Route 135/Central Street and Central/East Central Street will be detoured through the weekend. We will install signage indicating the detour route before any major construction begins. We encourage drivers to avoid the area or seek alternate routes to avoid delays.

If we expect that any of this work will have significant noise or traffic impacts in the neighborhood, we will send updates via email.

The schedule for this major infrastructure project is weather dependent and subject to change without notice.
