A computer rendering shows what the Parker Street Bridge will look like after full replacement.

We’re replacing the bridge that carries the Haverhill Line over Parker Street in Lawrence near Lawrence Station.

This project will bring the bridge to a State of Good Repair, improving safety, resiliency, and reliability of the Haverhill Line.

Building a Better T

As part of our $8 billion, 5-year capital investment plan, we're renovating stations, modernizing fare collection systems, upgrading services for our buses, subways, and ferries, and improving the accessibility of the entire system.

What to Expect During this Work

Crews will be installing the steel infrastructure for the new bridge from 9 PM on Thursday, June 10 until 5 AM on Monday, June 14.

Neighborhood Impacts

To allow for this work, Parker Street will be closed to all vehicular, bicycle, and pedestrian traffic during work hours. A signed detour route will be in place before construction begins. We encourage drivers to avoid the area or seek alternate routes to avoid delays.
