The Patrick Administration has approved a plan that will save time and money reconstructing the Route 1 Bridge over Route 62 (Maple Street) in Danvers. The scheduled completion date of March 25, 2011 has been moved forward to May 31, 2010.
MassHighway reached an agreement with its contractor, SPS New England of Salisbury, to complete the project in two phases, rather than the original four, cutting construction time by 298 days and potentially saving approximately $175,000 in construction costs on the $4.175 million project.
The project involves reconstruction of the Route 1 (Newbury Street) bridge. The work includes removal and replacement of the deck slab and installation of new guardrail substructure repair. One lane of traffic will remain open in each direction for the duration of the project. Construction began in February 2008.
