Completion

Originally constructed in 1898, the Shore Line Bridge carries the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) commuter rail and CSX freight lines over Amtrak’s Northeast Corridor. MBTA needed to replace the existing steel through-truss railroad bridge due to the poor condition of the existing foundations. SGH assisted the contractor, Barletta Heavy Division (Barletta), by providing construction engineering services to facilitate removing and replacing the bridge with a new steel through-girder bridge.
