The purpose of this meeting is to provide the public with the opportunity to become fully acquainted with the construction phase of the I-495 Andover-Lawrence Bridge replacement project. All views and comments submitted in response to the meeting will be reviewed and considered to the maximum extent possible.


The project consists of the full replacement of the four bridges which carry I-495 over Route 28 and the two bridges which carry the highway over the MBTA Haverhill Commuter Rail line. Work will begin later this spring and will last for approximately four years. Construction includes temporary, overnight lane closures, ramp closures, and detours. MassDOT will use the meetings to inform the public about construction timing, detour routes, and measures being taken to help the project be a good neighbor. 

A secure right-of-way is necessary for this project. Acquisitions in fee and permanent or temporary easements may be required. The Commonwealth of Massachusetts is responsible for acquiring all needed rights in private or public lands. MassDOT’s policy concerning land acquisitions will be presented in the hearing.
