FALL RIVER, Mass. (WLNE)- MassDOT has announced that it will be performing an emergency bridge deck repair on the ramp from Route 24 northbound to I-195 westbound over I-195 in Fall River.

This will begin Tuesday afternoon and there is not a estimated completion of the project. The repairs were required after a large are of concrete was seen deteriorating and a plan to repair was implemented immediately.

One lane of travel will remain open on the bridge during construction. The breakdown and right travel lanes on I-195 eastbound will be temporarily closed for safety. A minimum of two travel lanes will remain open at all times during construction.
