BRIDGEWATER- MIDDLEBOROUGH- BRIDGE REPLACEMENT, B-23-005=M-18-002, SUMMER STREET OVER THE TAUNTON RIVER
The proposed project consists of replacing the existing two-span bridge at Summer Street over the Taunton River with a single span bridge. The proposed bridge superstructure will consist of a reinforced concrete deck slab supported by prestressed concrete spread box beams. The proposed substructure will consist of integral abutments located behind the existing abutments. The existing pier will be completely demolished. The project also includes new bridge railings, highway guard rail and improvements to the approach roadways. The bridge structure will be closed to traffic during construction and a detour route will be implemented.
