Neponset River Bridge Opening, Lt. Governor, October 25, 2012

Lieutenant Governor Timothy P. Murray and MassDOT Secretary and CEO Richard A. Davey today joined state and local officials to celebrate the substanial completion of the Neponset River Bridge.

"Governor Patrick and I are committed to working with cities and towns to invest in critical infrastructure improvements," said Lieutenant Governor Murray. 

"In working with both Quincy and Boston through the state’s Accelerated Bridge Program, we are finishing major renovations to the Neponset River Bridge Project ahead of schedule and look forward to future economic growth opportunities and a better quality of life for the community."

Minor finish work remains, with any lane restrictions during off-peak travel periods and not affecting the morning or evening commute. 

The $33.7 million Neponset River Bridge project begun in February 2010 is funded by the Patrick-Murray Administration’s Accelerated Bridge Program.  The project will be completed in March 2013, five months ahead of the original scheduled completion date of August 2013.

“The Neponset River Bridge is a critical link between Quincy and Boston, and we’re excited to see this finish ahead of schedule,” said MassDOT Secretary and CEO Richard A. Davey.  “I want to thank our District 6 Construction team and our contractor JF White for their hard work in finishing early.”

 “Through the Accelerated Bridge Program we have been able to make substantial progress in addressing the backlog of structurally deficient bridges,” said MassDOT Highway Administrator Frank DePaola.  “With this project reaching substantial completion, we have now reduced the total number of bridges that need repairs by close to 20 percent.”
