The Patrick Administration today announced the reopening of the flood-damaged historic Warner's Bridge over the Ipswich River. The bridge on Mill Road links Ipswich and Hamilton and is known as the Highland Street Bridge in Hamilton.
The $3.3-million project involved the rehabilitation of the locally-owned bridge, which was heavily damaged and closed as a result of a Mother’s Day flood in May 2006.
MassHighway first made $800,000 in emergency repairs including placement of underwater concrete to address undermining of piers, abutments and footings. The work of the past several months strengthened all three arches and installed countermeasures to prevent future problems. The project also included roadway reconstruction.
