A Public Information Meeting for MassDOT’s Whittier Bridge/I-95 Project has been scheduled as follows::
Wednesday, October 23, 7 PM, Amesbury High School, 5 Highland Street, Amesbury
The purpose of this meeting is to provide the public with the opportunity to comment on the 75% Design for the proposed Whittier Bridge/I-95 Improvement Project.
The $292 million project is one of five “mega” projects in the historic Accelerated Bridge Program to repair or replace structurally deficient bridges. The design-build project will replace the existing 57-year old six-lane bridge over the Merrimack River with a new eight-lane structure that will also include bicycle and pedestrian lanes.
The proposed project also includes the replacement or reconstruction of four adjacent bridges along I-95 in Newburyport and Amesbury and widening I-95 between Exit 57 in Newburyport and Exit 60 in Salisbury. The project includes the Whittier Trail: the first shared-use path to be constructed along a Massachusetts interstate.
The design-build entity for the project is Walsh-McCourt JV1. Preliminary work is currently underway.
For more information on the Public Meeting, please see the meeting notice.
