Alford Street Bridge, Charlestown

Alford Street Bridge Replacement Project, Charlestown

Alford Street Bridge (State Route 99 over the Mystic River) is being completely reconstructed with a new deck and superstructure.  The machinery of this twin leaf double bascule bridge (sometimes referred to as a drawbridge) is being reconditioned with new components and the substructure is being repaired.  The rehabilitation was designed to withstand a 1,500 year seismic event.
