LOWELL- BRIDGE REPLACEMENT, L-15-045, MARKET STREET OVER THE WESTERN CANAL
The purpose of this project is to replace the bridge carrying Market Street over the Western Canal in the City of Lowell. The existing bridge, which was built in 1920, has a curb-to-curb width of 42.5 feet with two 9.5-foot sidewalks. The proposed bridge curb-to-curb width will remain the same. Market Street is a two-lane, two-way, urban minor arterial. Work on the roadway will include full depth reconstruction of 500 feet beyond the bridge on both approaches. Once beyond the limits of reconstruction, the pavement will be cold planed to match the existing pavement on the two approaches. A detour for vehicular and pedestrian traffic during the demolition, removal, and replacement of the existing bridge will be considered.
