Fast 14:  MassDOT Replaces 14 Bridges on I - 93 This Summer 


Interim Website:

During the summer of 2011, the Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) will replace 14 deteriorated bridge superstructures on Interstate 93 in the city of Medford, MA.

This plan avoids impacting weekday rush-hour traffic.


MassDOT will:
• Minimize the impact of the project on travelers and communities
• Use cutting-edge engineering and construction innovation to reduce the construction duration as much as possible
• Communicate important project information and schedule updates with the public in a detailed and ongoing way


MassDOT is committed to providing safe and durable replacement bridges. The project has been developed by the Accelerated Bridge Program to result in the fewest construction-related impacts on traffic, businesses, residents and tourism.

This preliminary website at will be replaced by a site with many helpful features, including an interactive map to help residents, visitors and businesses plan travel during construction; detour maps for local and regional travel; and links to live traffic cameras, videos and photos of the construction. to send MassDOT your email to sign up for future information about the project.  to read a detailed project overview. to connect to Mass 511 to create a cell phone or email account for real-time traffic information.
