MassDOT is conducting a study of the New Bedford-Fairhaven Bridge Corridor, a bridge that spans New Bedford Harbor. The swing bridge connecting the communities of New Bedford and Fairhaven is functionally obsolete, constrains marine traffic, and its opening results in extensive vehicle delays. This study will evaluate transportation and associated land use issues, develop potential solutions, and recommend improvements along the Route 6 corridor.
This website provides information about this project, including ways for the public to get involved. We will be periodically posting updates of upcoming meetings as well as material developed during the study. We encourage your involvement and input throughout the study.
