Whitter Bridge 2Work on the Whittier Bridge/I-95 Project in Newburyport and Amesbury will require extended lane closure hours beginning next week.

Beginning on Monday, September 22, the hours of daytime construction will extend the I-95 Northbound right lane closure the associated right lane closure on I-95 Northbound by one hour in the evening to 6:00 pm, Monday through Thursday. Right lane closures will be in effect from 7:00 am to 6:00 pm on Monday through Thursday. Traffic conditions will be monitored during the extended hours; however, drivers should expect some level of delay.

The $292 million project is one of five “mega” projects in the historic Accelerated Bridge Program to repair or replace structurally deficient bridges. The design-build project will replace the existing six-lane bridge over the Merrimack River, built in 1951, with a new structure that includes eight vehicle lanes and a shared use path for bicycle and pedestrian use.

For more information, questions or concerns about the work, please contact Daniel Fielding at 857-368-8959 or daniel.fielding@dot.state.ma.us.
