Waltham, Winter Street Bridge over I-95, October 19, 2011MassDOT Secretary and CEO Richard A. Davey today announced the completion of the $23 million Winter Street Bridge reconstruction project over Rt. 128 in Waltham.

“Governor Deval Patrick has made bridge and roadway infrastructure improvements a priority in his Administration,” Secretary Davey said. “Residents, commuters, local business and business travelers are already benefitting from the newly reconstructed Winter Street Bridge. Projects like this one help to fuel a healthy economy.”

Along with the addition of three travel lanes, the project, which began in 2005, also doubled the size of the intersection at Wyman Street and increased the ease of navigating the on and off-ramps to Route 128.

“Today’s ribbon-cutting has been a long time coming. In 2006, financial issues with the original contractor stalled the project. We persevered and MassDOT is proud of the finished job,” said MassDOT Highway Administrator Frank DePaola.

Innovative project sequencing by MassDOT allowed for the relocation and continued infrastructure support of major utility lines during demolition of the old bridge structure and construction of the new bridge abutments.
