Whitter Bridge 2 MassDOT has scheduled a public information meeting for the Whittier Bridge/I-95 Improvement Project for the following date, time, and place:

Thursday, January 21, 2010, 6:00-8:00 PM
Amesbury Town Hall, Auditorium
62 Friend Street, Amesbury, MA

The Whittier Bridge/I-95 Project will replace the Whittier Bridge over the Merrimack River with a new structure including four travel lanes and a high-speed shoulder and breakdown lane in each direction.

It is one of the most significant projects to be undertaken by MassDOT under the Commonwealth’s $3 billion Accelerated Bridge Program and will improve safety and add I-95 lane capacity to reduce congestion.  The project also includes the replacement or reconstruction of four adjacent bridges along I-95 in Amesbury and Newburyport.

The purpose of this meeting is to present the highway widening and bridge river crossing alternatives.    MassDOT staff will answer questions and gather public comment on the alternatives. 

To be added to the project email or US Mail distribution lists, contact Stephanie Boundy, 617-973-8049 or Stephanie.Boundy@state.ma.us.  Learn more about the ABP Whittier Bridge project.
