Haverhill, Bates Bridge 2, February 22, 2012Work is moving forward during winter 2012 to replace the Bates Bridge over the Merrimack River between Groveland and Haverhill.

The $49.75 million project will replace the existing Bates Bridge carrying Routes 97/113 with a new bridge located approximately 60 feet
downstream. The existing bridge is open during construction.  The project includes a movable span similar to the existing bridge,  reconstruction of the approach roadways in Haverhill and Groveland and traffic signal improvements.  Temporary cofferdams have been used during construction. 

As of late February, much of the construction in the river is being staged from two working barges, including concrete installation on piers.  The project is scheduled for completion in early 2014.
