MassDOT Highway Division contractors will replace the bridge located on Route 28 (North Main Street) near the intersection of Railroad Street in Andover.
The project is underway as of February 15th with tree clearing, to be followed by utility relocation of the overhead wires.
The work on the structure will begin in fall 2016 with completion expected by fall 2018. The project includes replacement of the southern abutment/pier and portions of the northern abutment. The superstructure will be replaced with a steel stringer bridge, with a permanent utility bridge to carry all utilities.
The project contractor is MAS Building and Bridge, Inc. As always, MassDOT contractors will take steps to minimize to the extent possible impacts associated with the construction of the project.
The North Main Street Bridge in Andover carries Route 28 over the MBTA railroad tracks.
Project questions may be directed to the MassDOT project field office, 978-475-4385.
