Overview   of Duxbury - Route 3 Bridge Replacement

The Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) is hosting a Live Virtual Public Information Meeting for the Duxbury Route 3 Bridge Replacement Project. At this meeting, the project team will update the public on the design and discuss early construction activities for the Route 3 Bridge Replacement project, located where Route 3 crosses over Franklin Street in Duxbury.


The meeting will begin with a presentation by the project team, followed by time for attendees to ask questions.


MassDOT is providing safety and operational improvements to the proposed Route 3 NB/SB bridges (Pilgrim Highway) over Franklin Street. Proposed work includes the complete replacement of the bridges, widening existing shoulders along Rt 3, replacing guard railing, upgrading the drainage along Rt 3, repaving of Rt 3, and adding new curbing and sidewalks down on Franklin Street.

In the first phase of construction, travel lanes along Rt 3 will be shifted to the outside to facilitate construction of part of the new bridges in the median. The second phase will shift traffic toward the median on the newly constructed sections of the bridges. Two travel lanes along Rt 3 will be maintained during peak travel, but reduced to one lane during off-peak times.

Project inquiries, written statements, and other exhibits regarding the proposed undertaking may be submitted to Carrie E. Lavallee, P.E., Chief Engineer, via e-mail to or via US Mail to Suite 7210, 10 Park Plaza, Boston, MA 02116, Attention: Major Projects, Project File No. 605294.
