Franklin Line Guild Street Bridge Rehabilitation
Timeline: 2016 – 2019
The Guild Street bridge carries the Franklin Line over Guild Street in Norwood, and was first built in 1896. The granite block abutments and riveted steel-thru girders had been damaged by time and weather and have been replaced by this work
