Groveland-Haverhill, Bates Bridge, April 1, 2013The Bates Bridge Replacement Project over the Merrimack River in Groveland/Haverhill continues to progress in April 2013 with roadway work on both sides of the bridge.

The $49.7 million project will replace the existing Bates Bridge with a new bridge located approximately 60 feet downstream.

The existing bridge has remained in service during construction. The new bridge will have a movable span similar to the existing bridge.  The project also includes reconstruction of the approach roadways in Haverhill and Groveland and traffic signal improvements at the intersection of Groveland Street with Lincoln Avenue in Haverhill and at the intersection of Groveland Street with Main Street near Elm Park in Groveland.

During the first two weeks of April, MassDOT contractors are reconstructing the section of Orchard Avenue on the Haverhill side of the new bridge, with the roadway closed and a short detour in place using Ordway Avenue.  Roadway reconstruction on the Groveland approach is expected to begin in late April.

The project is scheduled for completion in early 2014.
