Hines Bridge Overhead The Hines Memorial Bridge over the Merrimack River in Amesbury is scheduled to close at 5:00 am on November 15. The bridge closure will allow crews to begin heavy construction associated with the bridge replacement.  During construction, traffic in both directions will be detoured across the Merrimack River using I-95 via Route 113 and Route 110.

The $34 million reconstruction of Hines Memorial Bridge is a MassDOT design-build project that includes complete replacement of the bridge superstructure and the majority of the substructure along with new electrical and mechanical components for the moveable spans. The new bridge will consist of a four-span superstructure with two fixed approach spans and two pivoting middle spans.
