Construction began in September on the Cabot Road Timber Bridge Replacement, a project designed by Bayside Engineering of Woburn. The bridge is part of the Danvers Rail Trail and is located over a foot path behind the Danvers High School Field.
While the bridge predominantly carries pedestrian traffic, Bayside’s design incorporates the expanded usage of heavier utility line trucks from Danvers Electric. The backbone to Danver’s electric system via sub-transmission circuits and distribution circuits are located on this Right of Way. Danvers Electric trucks routinely drive this easement for line inspection, maintenance and repair.
The Danvers Rail Trail is a 4 1/3-mile non-motorized shared-use path linking schools, downtown Danvers, parks, residential areas, and trails in the neighboring towns of Peabody, Wenham, and Topsfield.
Construction is scheduled to be completed in 2017.
