Parker Street Reconstruction - Bridge Replacement

Parker Street Underpass Construction

Project Manager: Mass Highway Department
Engineer: Michael McCabe - Mass Highway Department
Project Budget: $11,017,848.00
Project Location: Parker Street
Contractor: R.H. White
Start Date: February 2006
Anticipated Completion Date: Fall of 2008

Description:
The project is the reconstruction of approximately 5,540
feet of Parker Street, from Boston Road to Main Street, including 250 feet of Verge Street, and 400 feet of Oak Street, resulting in a total roadway reconstruction of approximately 6,190 linear feet. The new CSX bridge carrying three tracks over Parker Street will be raised to provide more roof clearance for vehicular traffic under the bridge. The new longer bridge will also eliminate the current 30 foot wide underpass roadway bottleneck on Parker Street. The new underpass section will be increased and widened to 64 feet, and will consist of two turning lanes, two through traffic lanes, and two sidewalks. This major north/south inner city transportation and commercial artery carries a daily vehicle count approaching 31,000. The project also entails geometric improvements and the upgrade of existing signalization, and new signalization with pedestrian activation at intersection crossings along Parker Street.

Project Status:

  • Project was completed in November of 2008
