MA: Pleasant Street Bridge Project

NOMINEE: Innovative Management – Small Project
Pleasant Street Bridge Project
Grafton, MA

The Pleasant Street Bridge is located in Grafton, Massachusetts, serving as an important transportation link in the area. The original bridge, constructed in 1909, was duplicated in appearance by the new bridge. To expedite the reopening of the long closed bridge, MassDOT used an incentive clause to accelerate the bridge opening.

The design-build methodology allowed for site and substructure work to progress into construction simultaneous with the final design engineering. Conventional methods would have taken over 18 months to design and construct this project. This project was declared substantially complete 64 days earlier than the contractual requirements and finished with a cost that was below MassDOT’s original cost estimate.
