The successful, ambitious project replaced 14 bridges in ten weekends during the summer of 2011, compressing a four year project into a single construction season.
To accomplish this, the project used innovations including accelerated bridge construction methods, advanced concrete, and design/build contracting.
The project team also performed comprehensive outreach and communication activities to help prepare road users, businesses and communities for the construction of the bridges.
A brief survey, funded by an FHWA grant, seeks to measure satisfaction with the bridges and the technology used to replace them, and identify which communication methods people found most useful. The FHWA developed the survey and will analyze the responses.
Your input is very valuable to MassDOT and will help guide decision-making for upcoming infrastructure projects. This survey is an excellent opportunity for you to participate in the future of transportation.
MassDOT invites you to take the survey, which takes approximately 5 minutes to complete.
