BACKGROUND: This project replaced the two M-21 bridges over the Flat River in downtown Lowell, marking the first reconstruction of these bridges since they were built in 1941. The $2.15 million investment will extend the service life of the bridges and increase ride quality. The sidewalk and barrier upgrades will increase safety and improve aesthetics for both pedestrians and motorists in the downtown area. The barrier wall design was selected based on input from city officials and local stakeholders.
This event is being held to acknowledge the positive impact of the project and recognize the contributions of all those involved.
MDOT says: Construction work zones need your undivided attention.
