Fixing Bridges, Doing Business Differently
The historic $3 billion Patrick-Murray Accelerated Bridge Program represents a monumental investment in Massachusetts bridges. This program will greatly reduce the number of structurally deficient bridges in the state system, while creating thousands of construction jobs on bridge projects.
To complete this program MassDOT and DCR will rely on the use of innovative and accelerated project development and construction techniques. As a result, projects will be completed on-time, on-budget and with minimum disruption to people and to commerce.
Since 2008, the number of former MassHighway and Dept. of Conservation and Recreation structurally deficient bridges has dropped from 543 to 416, a decline of over 23%. As of April 1, 2014 the ABP Program has completed 155 bridge projects, with another 29 bridge projects in construction, and an additional 15 bridge projects scheduled to start construction within the next calendar year. Over the course of the eight year program, well over 200 bridges are planned to be replaced or repaired.
