Haverhill-West Newbury Rocks Village BridgeMassDOT contractors have begun the $14.1 million rehabilitation of the historic Rocks Village Bridge carrying Main Street over the Merrimack River at the Haverhill/West Newbury line.  The project is funded by the Patrick-Murray Administration's Accelerated Bridge Program to repair structurally deficient bridges across the Commonwealth.

The work will include rehabilitation or replacement of the moveable bridge components along with replacement of the bridge deck and portions of the steel superstructure. 

During the initial preliminary work including installation of work access platforms beneath the bridge structure, the existing alternating, one-way traffic pattern across the bridge will be maintained. 

The bridge is scheduled to be closed to all traffic on approximately June 18, 2012 and will remain closed through August 2013.  Signs and other traffic control measures will be in place to assist drivers in the work area.  

MassDOT encourages drivers to allow extra time for their trips and to reduce speed and use caution when travelling through the work zone.
