massdot_highway_logoMassDOT’s Board of Directors has approved an approximately $29.4 million contract for work to replace bridges which carry vehicles traveling on Route 3 over roads in Hanover and Norwell.

This project, which involves replacing the bridge carrying Route 3 northbound and southbound over High Street in Norwell and the bridge carrying Route 3 northbound and southbound over Route 123, (Webster Street) in Hanover, is expected to begin this summer and be completed by 2020.

No long-term lane closures are proposed for this project as construction operations will be completed using short-term overnight lane closures for certain activities such as paving, bridge demolition and beam setting. The contract work will be done in such a way as to have as minimal impact as possible on drivers who travel on Route 3 and the surrounding roads.

The scope of work for this comprehensive project involves replacing existing steel bridges, increasing the vertical clearance under the bridges, constructing conventional concrete abutments, realigning Route 3 at each location, and paving areas as appropriate. Additionally, crews and contractors will install new guardrail, relocate utilities and conduct slope work at each location.

Construction operations will be completed in four primary stages in order to minimize the impact on the traveling public throughout the three-year project. During these stages, new bridges will be constructed in the median area at each location to accommodate traffic flow while the existing bridge superstructures and roadway approaches on the mainline are demolished and then reconstructed.

MassDOT encourages drivers to utilize the appropriate travel resources throughout the duration of this project and make informed decisions regarding travel plans. Those traveling through the area should be mindful of delays and potential traffic impacts, reduce speed, and use caution.   MassDOT appreciates the patience of the public as this important project progresses through the construction phases.
