The Fore River Bridge is being replaced through the Commonwealth's $3 billion Accelerated Bridge Program. The original bridge was constructed as a swing bridge in 1902 and replaced by a bascule bridge in 1936. The bridge was determined to be “structurally deficient” in 2002 and ordered torn down. A temporary bridge was erected. The replacement bridge, expected to be built in three phases includes the construction of a new, permanent steel vertical lift bridge rising to 200 feet.
