The State has recently spent millions on the control and operation systems of the Memorial Bridge and it's still malfunctioning. The state has also deemed this bridge TROUBLED, OUT DATED and OVER CAPACITY! These problems can not be repaired. The I-140 completion is many years off, but even if completed today, it would do little to alleviate the conjestion from our daily east-west metro traffic and traffic from the State Port. The work soon to be done on the bridge is mainly a paint job. To slow down further corrosion and hopefully improve the appearance.
