Construction on the Wood Street overpass in East Milton has wrapped up earlier than expected. While the work, which began on September 7, was initially scheduled as a three-to-four-month project, it was completed in about a month and a half.
The overnight construction on the one-way bridge detoured traffic coming from Boston toward East Milton Square to turn left or right on Squantum Street.
MassDOT announced last week that the bridge would reopen on Tuesday, November 27, but the project again moved ahead of schedule, opening on Friday, November 23.
The detour added to traffic changes in the square with the test run of the new configuration that are planned to become perfect.
