Project Details

Crews began performing waterproofing on the MMMBT bridge spans in late July 2011. This project will extend the life expectancy of the structures for an additional 15 to 20 years past its normal life span. Motorists can expect to experience single lane, overnight closures during construction activities.

The waterproofing of the southbound spans of the MMMBT was completed in 2014.

Work on the northbound spans will start in fall of 2015, and is expected to be complete by the fall of 2016.
