[ARCHIVED] Duck Bridge Restricted Opening

As of 2:30PM today, MassDOT and SPS New England, Inc, have completed a partial repair of the Duck Bridge with parts they were able to obtain. At this point, MassDOT will be opening the Duck Bridge overnight tonight, sometime after 12 midnight. This will be a restricted opening, as MassDOT has deemed the bridge safe for vehicles with a weight limit of 3-tons. No heavy trucks will be allowed to cross the bridge.

The Lawrence Police Department and the Department of Public Works are working with MassDOT to install signage indicating the 3-ton weight limit. The Lawrence Police Department will also have police details on either side of the bridge to enforce this weight limit.

This restriction will remain in place until further notice. MassDOT and SPS New England continue to work to get all the resources and parts needed to complete the permanent repair. Updates will continue as information comes in.
