Culvert Replacement in Berkley

Culvert Replacement in Berkley

South Coast Rail Early Action construction projects are underway to prepare for Phase 1 main line rail construction.  The first visible active construction project is drainage culvert replacement along the right-of-way. 

 

The work includes drainage culvert repair and replacement, a railroad grade crossing upgrade and constructing wetlands as mitigation along the right-of-way. 

From Middleborough to New Bedford and Fall River, MassDOT’s contractor will replace a total of 46 culverts with new precast structures, clean an additional 16 existing culverts, and remove 1 out-of-service culvert.  Existing granite culverts are being replaced with new precast concrete structures.

This project also includes constructing six wetlands impact mitigation areas adjacent to the railroad right-of-way.

The culverts, grade crossing and wetland mitigation work is currently scheduled for completion in early 2020.

For more information, please visit the project website. If you have questions, please email the project team: SouthCoastRail@dot.state.ma.us
