Mattawamkeag Bridge Replacement – Mattawamkeag, ME
Reed & Reed is in the final stages of the new Mattawamkeag Bridge on US Rt.2 in Mattawamkeag, Maine for the Maine Department of Transportation. The new bridge opened to traffic on September 15, 2022 after having been detoured via a temporary detour bridge adjacent to the new structure since May 2021. The project involved installation of the detour bridge, demolition of the existing concrete bridge structure, pile supported concrete abutments, installation of two new concrete river piers on bedrock, structural steel erection, construction of the new concrete bridge deck, and associated approach work. Construction began in January 2021 and will complete well ahead of the contract completion date of December 2023.
