Whittier Bridge/I-95 Improvement Project
What's New

MassDOT will implement nighttime "rolling roadblocks" on I-95 South on Monday, August 3 and I-95 North on Tuesday, August 4 to allow the contractor to remove beams from the old Pine Hill Road/Ferry Road Bridge. Additional nighttime lane closures are scheduled between Route 113 and Route 110 on I-95 North and South both nights.

Demolition of the old Pine Hill Road/Ferry Road Bridge continues. Traffic has been shifted to the new bridge. For more information, please review the Pine Hill Road/Ferry Road Bridge Closure and Demolition Notice.

Visit the Updates page for information on these and other traffic management and construction activities. Please view the Notice to Merrimack River Boaters for information about work taking place on the river that affects navigation.
