The exisiting Parker Street Bridge on the Haverhill Line of the Commuter Rail

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 begin demolishing a portion of the existing bridge on Sunday, May 9. Work will continue Monday through Friday, 9 PM – 5 AM for about two weeks.

There will be additional weekend demolition work starting at 9 PM on Friday, May 21, and continuing through 5 AM on Sunday, May 23.

Neighborhood Impacts

To allow for this work, Parker Street will be closed to travel during work hours. We will install signage indicating the detour route before construction begins. We encourage drivers to avoid the area or seek alternate routes to avoid delays.
