2017.11 Hackett Road Emergency Vehicle Ramp

Construction Contract Info
Contractor:  Wyman & Simpson, Inc.
Bid Amount:  $1,154,486.00
Projected Completion Date: November 17, 2017


Hackett Road Bridge will be closed for construction beginning Tuesday, August 8, 2017.  
The closure is expected to last approximately 12 weeks.

Project Scope:  The project includes bridge repairs to the Hackett Road Bridge as well as the construction of an access ramp to provide a connection to the southbound lanes of the turnpike for MTA maintenance vehicles. The repairs will include fixing steel girder damage from  an over height vehicle hit, raising of the bridge to avoid future vehicle hits, reconstruction of the roadway approaches, replacement of the bridge wearing surface and repairs to the concrete deck and substructure.  The ramp will be gated and is primarily used by the Maine Turnpike Authority maintenance vehicles, but will also be available for other emergency vehicles, such as the Fire Department or Police Department, as needed.  The need for this project arises from the Authority’s desire to increase safety by having maintenance vehicles utilize vehicle ramps to change direction instead of using a paved median crossover.  Eliminating this maneuver will increase safety for both patrons of the Turnpike and highway maintenance employees.
