About the Project

Timeline: 2016 – 2019
Status: Construction ongoing

The East Street Bridge, which carries the Franklin Line over East Street in Westwood, is being upgraded for improved vehicle clearance and pedestrian safety.

The original bridge, built in 1911, had low clearance, and the roadway beneath had no sidewalks, posing a safety hazard to vehicles and pedestrians passing under it.
