Even with the summer winding down, progress on the Bates Bridge over the Merrimack River continues to advance, through the efforts of MassDOT and the contractor. The bridge project has now reached 60% completion of work with the finalization of a southeast and a northeast retaining wall and the reinforcement of cofferdam 3.
