Whitter Bridge 2A Public Hearing will be held on the proposed Whittier Bridge/I-95 Project in Amesbury, Newburyport and Salisbury at the following date and location:

Thursday, June 21, 6:30 pm, Amesbury High School, Auditorium, 5  Highland Street, Amesbury

The purpose of this meeting is to seek public comment on the 25% Design for the proposed project, which includes the replacement of the John Greenleaf Whittier Bridge over the Merrimack River along with replacement or reconstruction of four adjacent bridges along I-95 in Newburyport and Amesbury and widening I-95 between Exit 57 in Newburyport and Exit 60 in Salisbury. 

The project also includes the Whittier Trail: the first shared-use path to be constructed along a Massachusetts interstate.

The Whittier Bridge/I-95 Improvement Project was selected by the Obama Administration for
expedited permitting and environmental review. It is one of MassDOT's largest projects as part of the
Patrick-Murray Administration's Accelerated Bridge Program.

Plans will be on display one-half hour before the hearing begins, with an engineer in attendance to answer questions regarding this project.
