Methuen Bridge

Two temporary bridges are open and work is proceeding on expedited replacement of the Route 28 bridge over Route 213 in Methuen.

This spring, the Patrick Administration announced MassHighway will complete the $10 million project in approximately one year instead of the originally scheduled two years. 

The schedule is another example of MassHighway’s commitment to the Governor’s priority of streamlined project delivery in transportation.

MassHighway identified the opportunity to construct two temporary bridges instead of one in Methuen due to a change in the relocation of overhead utilities.  The result is that use of the existing bridge during construction as originally planned is not necessary.  

Methuen 2 July09

In the month since the temporary bridges opened, demolition of the existing bridge has been completed and concrete placement is underway.

Completion of the new four-lane bridge is scheduled for April 2010, rather than the original scheduled completion in April 2011.
