LOWELL- ROURKE BRIDGE REPLACEMENT, L-15-088, WOOD STREET EXTENSION OVER BOSTON AND MAINE RAILROAD AND MERRIMAC RIVER
The proposed project replaces the temporary Rourke Bridge structure with a permanent bridge. The bridge will have increased capacity providing two travel lanes in each direction, plus shoulders (able to accommodate bicycles) and sidewalks on either side of the bridge. Intersections at either end of the bridge will be reconstructed, as well as portions of Wood Street, Pawtucket Boulevard, and Old Ferry Road. The improvements include geometric changes, new signal systems and roadway widening.
