Lowell I495 Work

The Patrick-Murray Administration announced the $36.9 million reconstruction of both the northbound and southbound lanes of Interstate 495 in Lowell is moving forward as part of the historic $3 billion, eight-year Accelerated Bridge Program.  The "design-build" project will repair six bridges- two over the Boston & Maine and MBTA railroad, two crossing Woburn Street and two over the Concord River. Three lanes will operate at peak hours at all times in both directions for the duration of the project, with some work done at night. Construction is scheduled for completion by late 2010.

“Design/build is a critically important feature of the Accelerated Bridge Program, which MassHighway is treating as a laboratory of innovation,” said MassHighway Commissioner Luisa Paiewonsky. “We are reducing the timeframes for these projects while ensuring that safety and environmental protection are emphasized.”
