The $3.8 million Accelerated Bridge (ABP) project began construction in June 2009. MassDOT worked with contractor RDA Construction of Canton and local officials to accelerate the project delivery by using a single phase of construction with the bridge closed and traffic detoured. The result moved the completion date forward 10 months.
Pedestrian access will remain closed until early 2010 while the contractor completes final minor work. View more photos on MassDOT's Flickr page. Check out the Accelerated Bridge Program website to learn more.
