FRAMINGHAM – The Framingham Department of Public Works (DPW) said the Beaver Street Bridge will re-open to vehicular traffic and pedestrians this evening, Wednesday, September 9, in a press release issued after 6 p.m.
Construction for the bridge started in late April 2020. The existing bridge structure was demolished and replaced with a new concrete structure. Additional improvements include new water, sewer, and drainage utilities, sidewalks, guardrails, and pavement.
The bridge was scheduled to open in mid-August.
“A project of this magnitude paired with a long duration road closure can be impactful,” said Blake Lukis, Director of Public Works. “The entire DPW team appreciates residents’ and businesses’ patience and cooperation throughout this process.”
Punch list items will continue to be addressed after the bridge’s opening, said the City in a press release.
