Tuesday, April 27, 6:00 – 8:00 PM
Newburyport City Hall, Auditorium
60 Pleasant Street, Newburyport
The purpose of this meeting is to present an update on the environmental analyses for the highway widening and bridge river crossing alternatives that are being evaluated as part of the joint federal and state environmental review process. MassDOT staff will present information, answer questions and gather public comments, which will be carefully considered as the alternatives evaluation moves forward.
The Whittier Bridge/I-95 Improvement Project centerpiece is replacement of the Whittier Bridge over the Merrimack River. It is one of the most significant projects to be undertaken by MassDOT under the Commonwealth’s $3 billion Accelerated Bridge Program. The completed project will result in four travel lanes, a shoulder adjacent to the high speed travel lane and a breakdown lane in each direction along the length of the project corridor. The project will improve safety and reduce congestion with additional I-95 lane capacity. The project also includes the replacement or reconstruction of four adjacent bridges along I-95 in Amesbury and Newburyport.
If you have questions or would like more information about the project, please contact Mike O’Dowd, 617-973-7475. To be added to the project email or US Mail distribution lists, please contact Stephanie Boundy, 617-973-8049, Stephanie.Boundy@state.ma.us.
