Resident Engineer Bob Bosy and Area Engineer Chris Leahy hosted the site visit for students from the Merrimack College Civil Engineering Department.
Students from the Construction Management class were able to view the recently completed pile driving operations, installation of the Mechanically Stabilized Earth-retaining walls, and ongoing roadway construction.
The project is constructing a new 3-span steel arch bridge that will span over the existing historical stone masonry arch bridge. The historic bridge will be rehabilitated and converted for pedestrian use.
The $9.1 million project is scheduled for completion in spring 2014. MassDOT thanks the students for their interest and wishes them success in their future engineering careers.
