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.
