Skanska Secures $39M Contract to Rebuild Bridges in Boston and Somerville 

Skanska has been awarded a $39 million contract by the Massachusetts Department of Transportation to design and reconstruct the Maffa Way and Mystic Avenue Bridges in Boston and Somerville.  

The project aims to improve transit across two of the most highly trafficked roadways in the region and provide a multi-modal link between the two cities. The design-build project involves replacing two steel stringers and concrete deck superstructures, rehabilitating the existing bridge substructures, and reconstructing and resurfacing approximately 1,800 feet along Maffa Way and Mystic Avenue. The newly revamped bridges will include bike lanes, sidewalks, and dedicated bus lanes. 

“Not only will the planned improvements increase traffic capacity, but they will in tandem better accommodate pedestrians, cyclists, and transit commuters, enhancing the overall functionality of the bridges upon completion,” said Paul Pedini, senior vice president for Skanska USA Civil’s New England region. The project is expected to be completed by December 2026.
