MBTA: Gloucester Drawbridge Replacement
The MBTA is replacing the historic, bascule, Gloucester Drawbridge that carries the Gloucester/Rockport Commuter Rail Line over the Annisquam River in Gloucester, MA. The construction is being conducted over three phases to minimize commuter rail service disruptions and to minimize environmental impacts to fisheries.
As part of the PM/CM team, RND is responsible for the construction field inspection of the installation of the steel sheet wall. This part of the project is critical due to the Annisquam River (tidal) and state and federal permit restrictions. RND will monitor the track and wall installation to ensure the project specifications and criteria are achieved. RND will be on-site to monitor all construction activities and prepare daily logs of activities completely during the installation.
