West Roxbury Park Street Bridge, June 24, 2010 The Park Street Bridge over the MBTA commuter rail in West Roxbury reopens Friday, June 25, after meeting an aggressive schedule and being rehabilitated in just 61 days.

MassDOT closed the bridge to traffic in early April, responding to residents concerns about the condition of the bridge and working with constituents and Representative Michael Rush on reconstruction plans.   The $425,000 project funded by Governor Patrick's eight-year, $3 billion Accelerated Bridge Program replaced the superstructure, and the project includes a new bituminous concrete deck and repairs to the bridge substructure. 

The Park Street Bridge project is another example of streamlining the construction process and finishing more projects than ever on or ahead of schedule.  MassDOT reduced the time from construction contract advertisement to construction start from 422 days in 2007 to 124 days in 2009, while the number of projects completed on time this year is up 53%.
