Public Information Meeting: Bass River Bridge Replacement Project

Presented by the Massachusetts Department of Transportation

 Thursday, May 24, from 6:30 - 8:30 p.m.

Dennis Police Department, 90 Bob Crowell Rd, South Dennis, MA


The purpose of the meeting is to introduce the community to the Bass River Bridge Replacement Project, which will ultimately replace the existing bridge, located between the towns of Yarmouth and Dennis. The Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT), which owns and maintains the bridge, has retained a project team led by HDR Engineering Inc. to develop a design for the replacement of the structure.  The current project team is charged with developing a design which will eventually be advertised for construction by a qualified general contractor.  It is anticipated that construction will begin in 2020 and is estimated to cost $17.25 million.
