Map of affected area along East Broadway.

A portion of East Broadway was scheduled to close Monday to traffic while the city-owned East Broadway Bridge over Millvale Brook is replaced.

Traffic is being detoured along Millvale Road and Kenoza Street. The replacement bridge was designed by the city’s consultant, BETA Group, of Norwood, and is being built by Northern Construction of Weymouth, at a cost of $647,225.

The existing bridge was built in 1932 and consists of stone abutments and wingwalls and a concrete deck. The new bridge is a three-sided precast concrete structure with precast concrete wingwalls.

The full length of East Broadway is expected to reopen July 6.
