MassDOT today reopened the Hampshire Street Bridge over the Spicket River in Lawrence, ten months ahead of schedule and under the original budget. The locally owned bridge was closed on January 27 with detours in place to allow crews to complete the project.
The $2.1 million project funded through the American Recovery & Reinvestment Act demolished portions of the existing bridge to provide room to build a new, independent structure. Roadway and sidewalk improvements in the immediate area of the bridge were also included. MassDOT worked closely with local officials and representatives from the nearby Lawrence Central Catholic High School to minimize the impacts while the bridge was closed.
