Latest Update on Cohasset Narrows RR Bridge reconstruction. Third span now in place with tie installation in progress should be ready for Train passage by Wednesday, as that has been the schedule lately.

I hope Yarmouth Transfer Station can make it to Wednesday. I know nothing went through on Friday as the 3rd span was missing @ 330am

As long as Mass Coastal has provided Yarmouth & Otis transfer stations with enough empty cars they should make it. Also there is a possibility they may be able to run a train sooner than Wednesday, depending on weather conditions & work progress.

Mass Coastal just passed through Pocasset / Cataumet @ 1:30 PM on its way out to Otis, so Cohasset Narrows Bridge is passable today. I would think that Yarmouth must have had a delivery / pick up as well.

Drove by Cohasset Narrows Bridge this morning and due too the High winds the past few days the 4th span hasn't been installed yet. The crane is off the bridge waiting for the weather / wind conditions to improve.

Stopped by Cohasset Narrows Bridge today and looks like contractor is getting ready to resume steel work as new beams are staged at the marina parking lot. 2 spans to complete and should be ready for the Cape Flyer season next month.

I see that the beams didn't travel by rail. Of course, there is no doubt that the Mass Coastal is overburdened with too much freight on the Cape lines.
