As part of Patrick-Murray Administration’s $3 billion Accelerated Bridge Program, aimed at quickly repairing the Commonwealth’s most neglected bridges, MassDOT recently awarded a contract to J.F. White of Framingham for the full rehabilitation of Neponset River Bridge. During Phase II of the project, the concrete deck, expansion joints, sidewalks and lighting system will be replaced. Site preparation and set-up is ongoing and full construction is expected to begin by the end of the month.
