Concord Monument St Bridge Reopens 8JAN10 The Flint's Bridge carrying Monument Street over the Concord River in Concord reopened today more than three months ahead of schedule.

The bridge had been closed to traffic during construction requiring a detour for the many drivers using the bridge each day. 

The $4.4 million project involved reconstructing a bridge with historic arch design that is located within the North Bridge/Monument Square Historic District adjacent to Minute Man National Historic Park.

To preserve the arch, MassDOT-hired contractors used the innovative ArchTec system, which preserves and strengthens the arch using stainless steel rods inserted into the masonry.  The project also included roadway reconstruction and new guardrail and bridge rail. Despite additional design changes necessary during construction, the contractor R. Zoppo Construction of Stoughton completed work necessary to allow the bridge to reopen ahead of schedule.  Learn more about MassDOT road and bridge projects.
