The new northbound span is ready for business. Northbound traffic will be shifted to the lanes to the left of the median.

MassDOT’s Whittier Bridge I-95 Improvement Project will reach a major milestone on Wednesday, November 4 at 6:00 AM, when I-95 northbound traffic will shift to the new Whittier Bridge span.

The contractor will realign northbound traffic on I-95 North between the Pine Hill Road/Ferry Road Bridge in Newburyport and Route 110 in Amesbury.

Southbound traffic will be shifted to the new bridge span in December 2015. Another advisory will be distributed to notify the traveling public when that shift is scheduled to occur. Once all traffic is shifted to the new bridge, MassDOT will demolish the existing bridge. The new southbound structure will then be constructed in its place and southbound traffic will be shifted to it in late summer/early fall 2017.

MassDOT encourages those traveling through the project area to reduce speed and use caution. Drivers should expect delays and seek alternate routes if necessary.
