Lane-shifting is projected to start next week at the Route 35 bridge project, with alternating one-way traffic scheduled Monday, Jan. 16 through Wednesday, Jan. 18, according to Ryan Wodjenski of the state Department of Transportation. Describing the overall plans in an interview and an e-mail on Friday, Jan. 13, Wodjenski said northbound traffic will be transferred to the temporary bridge lane that has been built beside the Fox Hill pond - a shift expected to start Monday. Southbound traffic will remain in its current lane for a couple of days, but will then moved into what is now the northbound lane - a move scheduled for Wednesday. With traffic relocated to the northbound lane and the new temporary lane, the DOT and its contractor, Baier Construction, will wait for a few days to see how that arrangement is working, then construction on the actual bridge replacement - "bridge cutting" - will begin in what had been the southbound lane, but is now without traffic due to the lane shift. "Obviously, all activities are weather permitting," Wodjenski said.
