Amesbury, MA, December 8, 2017 – Starting at 5:00 AM the southbound span of the new John Greenleaf Whittier Bridge was opened to the public for the first time. Originally built in 1951, the Whittier Bridge is on the FHWA’s Final List of Nationally and Exceptionally Significant Features of the Federal Interstate Highway System. As a signature project of MassDOT’s Accelerated Bridge Program, innovative techniques were used, including the use of a high performance elastomeric spray waterproofing system designed to permanently protect the bridge deck.
The versatility and proven durability of our system made it the product of choice for this project, allowing installation over precast concrete panels, a key benefit that more rigid overlay systems cannot provide. We are incredibly proud to have been a part of this project, supplying the waterproofing that will protect this important investment that MassDOT made.
