Vehicle Strikes Historic Lawrence Bridge; Repairs Could Cost $500K

LAWRENCE, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — Lawrence's Union Street Bridge, also known as Duck Bridge, has been closed to cars after being struck by a truck overnight.

It is still open to pedestrians.

The historic bridge was built by Boston Bridge Works in 1888.

 

The truck that struck the bridge was caught on the city's fairly new surveillance cameras.

Lawrence Police said they identified P. Gioioso & Sons, Inc., a sub-contractor doing city sewer repairs, as the company responsible for damaging the bridge.

Repairs could cost up to half a million dollars.
