New Bedford-Fairhaven Bridge Corridor Study

About This Project

MassDOT recently conducted 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. The study evaluated transportation and associated land use issues, developed potential solutions, and recommended improvements along the Route 6 corridor.

This website provides information about this project, including the final report and past meeting materials. These can be reviewed under the Documents tab.
