Construction on the original Pearl Harbor Memorial Bridge, also referred to as the Quinnipiac River Bridge or Q Bridge, was completed in 1958 and had three traffic lanes going in each direction. Over the last 50-plus years, the population and number of vehicles in the area have grown considerably. At its peak, the bridge handled nearly double the amount of traffic it was originally designed to accommodate.
A new 10-lane Q Bridge is currently being built and will take several years to complete. As construction moves forward, the demolition of existing lanes and the opening of new ones will be necessary. Construction vehicle traffic is very heavy, with all types of equipment continually entering and leaving the construction area.
Construction crews have the responsibility of maintaining a safe site for motorists and workers alike. Failure to do so can result in serious accidents and severe injuries to victims. If you or a loved one has been injured in a Q bridge accident, you are entitled to seek full compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering and lost wages.
