FALL RIVER, Mass. (WPRI) — A milestone that was 15 years in the making; the eastbound side of the Braga Bridge now officially has all three lanes open.

The barrier was removed on Friday.

The westbound side may be open to all three lanes as early as late next week.

The Massachusetts Department of Transportation says there still may be intermittent short term lane closures over the next few months to complete punch list items.
