Bedford PageRoadBridge Completed 23NOV09 The new Page Road Bridge over the Shawsheen River in Bedford reopened today, several months ahead of schedule. 

The $1.8 million bridge project replaced an 88-year old structurally-deficient bridge with the new structure, which was designed by Purcell Associates, Boston.  Northern Construction Service, Weymouth, was awarded the construction contract. 

The original bridge was demolished and traffic rerouted. Work began in November 2008 and was completed on budget and in about one year, more than five months ahead of the original schedule.
