Great River Bridge

The Great River Bridge project was a multi-faceted effort encompassing bridge, park, traffic, utility, pedestrian, and streetscape improvements. The goal of the rehabilitation project was to not only provide a long-term resolution of traffic congestion, but also to spur an urban renewal effort. MassDOT selected STV to provide project management, planning, structural, roadway, electrical, and railroad engineering services for the design and construction of both the Great River Bridge as well as a new, identical Sister Bridge. Additionally, STV designed a replacement for a 280-foot railroad viaduct, which carries CSX trains through downtown Westfield. The project includes new riverfront parks that the public can enjoy.
