Spring 2012: Traffic Shift/Weekend Closure of Doyle Drive
Upon completion of Phase I construction, Doyle Drive was closed for a weekend in order to shift traffic onto the newly completed southbound structures and temporary bypass.
2012 — 2016: Construction of Phase II
Construction: Phase II construction has included a new northbound bridge, northbound Battery Tunnel, the Main Post Tunnels and the new Girard Road/Marina Boulevard/Richardson Avenue interchange.
Traffic: Traffic traveled on the completed southbound structures and temporary bypass road while the Phase II structures were being built.
Delivery: Phase II is being delivered through the public-private partnership method, which shifts responsibility for completing design and construction to a private concessionaire and makes use of long-term financing. This option also transfers responsibility for operating and maintaining the facility to the private concessionaire for 30 years.
