Hanover-Hanson Bridge Project, August 12, 2010 MassDOT contractors are moving well ahead of schedule in replacing the Broadway Street Bridge over Indian Head River in Hanover-Hanson.  The $1.4 million project begun last winter was originally scheduled for completion in spring 2012.  During value engineering, MassDOT contractors initiated an innovative plan to use precast segments in replacing the bridge, which is closed during this accelerated work. 

Significant progress has been made in the past few weeks, and the bridge is now scheduled to reopen in November 2010, more than one year ahead of schedule. 

MassDOT continues to complete more road and bridge projects on time and on budget. The number of projects completed on time this year is up 53%.  We have slashed the average time for advertising a project to the Notice to Proceed to construction from 422 days in 2007 to just 124 days this year.
