Pawtucket Street Bridge over the Pawtucket Canal to Remain Closed - Structure Will Remain Open to Bicyclists and Pedestrians

LOWELL – The Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) is announcing the Pawtucket Street bridge over the Pawtucket Canal in Lowell will remain closed to vehicular traffic following an inspection that found significant deterioration to the bridge deck. The bridge was closed by the City of Lowell on Monday, February 10, 2020 after it was discovered that a longitudinal section of the existing bridge deck had become dislodged and fallen from the bridge. MassDOT Bridge Inspection teams inspected the structure and reviewed historical design information and based on the present conditions recommended the bridge remain closed to vehicular traffic. The bridge will remain open to bicyclists and pedestrians.
