Beaver Street at Beaver Brook - Bridge Closure


The Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) – Highway Division recently completed an inspection of the Beaver Street at Beaver Brook Bridge. As a result of this inspection, MassDOT recommends that the Beaver Street at Beaver Brook Bridge be closed to vehicular traffic. The City was just notified of this recommendation and is implementing the appropriate measures to close the bridge to vehicular traffic beginning on Monday, July 29th. The bridge will be open to pedestrians and bicyclists. The duration of this bridge closure is not currently known. This bridge has previously been prioritized in the FY2020 capital plan for replacement. The City has a design consultant preparing bid documents with an estimated construction start of Spring 2020. The City will review this new information to see if temporarily bridge repairs are possible ahead of the bridge replacement work. As updates become available, the community will be notified.

Please see the detour route below. Drivers are asked to follow detour signs. The City reminds everyone to please drive safely.

Any questions or concerns can be directed to the City of Lowell Engineering Department (978-674-4070).
