93 Fast Bridge Replacement System Now Being Utilized Throughout US

This historic project replaced fourteen bridges in Medford over the course of just ten weekends between June and August, 2011. MassDOT used several innovations, a detailed traffic management plan and a comprehensive communications plan to complete the bridge work safely, efficiently, economically, and in a manner that caused the least possible construction-related impacts and congestion. The project was completed on-budget and ahead of schedule, replacing all fourteen bridges in less than a year. Using conventional methods, this project would have taken at least four years, and during those four years drivers would have had to endure long-term lane closure.
