Billerica, Whipple Street Bridge Opening, September 21, 2012MassDOT Highway Division Administrator Frank DePaola today joined state and local officials for the ribbon cutting ceremony and reopening of the Whipple Road Bridge that connects Wilmington and Billerica and also serves Tewksbury.

The $170,000 MassDOT project rehabilitated the locally-owned bridge, which closed in March 2010 following significant flood damage.   

“Rebuilding transportation infrastructure across the Commonwealth means addressing projects both large and small in scope but always of critical importance to their local communities,” said Administrator DePaola.  “I am pleased to be here today to see the results of our collaboration with local and state leaders in reopening this bridge.”

Following the March 2010 flood damage that closed the Whipple Road Bridge, the local communities were unable to fund the necessary repairs.  MassDOT hired contractor Kodiak Construction to rebuild the bridge, with the communities jointly paying approximately $10,000 of the cost.

Bridge rehabilitation began in June and the bridge reopened to traffic today.
