ROAD WORK Scheduled to begin September 16, 2019
Parker River Bridge
Route 28, West Yarmouth
The Parkers River Bridge will be replaced and widened to a new 30’ wide bridge to improve tidal flushing, reduce nitrogen loads in the Parkers River estuary, and improve the streetscape. The project will happen in two major phases. The first phase is the construction of the south side of the bridge from Fall 2019 until Spring 2020. The second phase is the construction of the north side of the bridge from Fall 2020 until Spring 2021. Fall 2020 will include site restoration. Utility work will be ongoing throughout the construction of the bridge.
This work is expected to be completed by January 2022. Both lanes of travel will be open during construction. Work hours will be 7:00AM to 3:30PM Monday through Friday. This construction work may cause temporary delays and some work will include vibrations. Pedestrians will be able to walk each side of the bridge during construction with a temporary pedestrian bridge located on the south side.
Police Details will be on site or traffic control as needed. A Resident Engineer will be on site at all times to ensure the safety and completion of the bridge.
Please direct questions or concerns to the DPW Administrative office at 508-398-2231, ext. 1250
