Lawrence Canal Street, Student Tour2, May 2012MassDOT engineers this spring provided college engineering students an upclose tour of the Canal Street over the Spicket River Bridge replacement project in Lawrence. 

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.
