Route 79/Braga Bridge Improvement Project
|Location: Fall River, MA|
|General Contractor: Barletta Heavy/O&G Joint Venture|
This project is one of five ongoing "mega-projects" under the $3 billion Accelerated Bridge Program in Massachusetts. The three and a half year project will improve safety, access and aesthetics near the City Pier area of Fall River. Eleven bridge structures or viaducts will be reduced to seven, almost all shorter in length. The project includes removal of the Route 79 viaduct, a 1960s bi-level structure in serious disrepair, replacing it with a new surface roadway.
