Abstract: The replacement of the John Greenleaf Whittier Memorial Bridge was one of the signature projects of the Massachusetts Department of Transportation's $3-billion accelerated bridge construction program. The network tied arch structural system selected for the main span of the new northbound and southbound structures that the bridge comprises was a novel solution developed to overcome significant construction challenges.
