Trolley Bridge Rehabilitation
Watermark was awarded a contract by the National Park Service to rehabilitate a trolley bridge and a section of the trolley’s railroad track located in downtown Lowell, MA. The work included the demolition of an existing wooden bridge over a canal, the rehabilitation of structural supports and the reconstruction of the wood decking and railings.
A section of the trolley tracks adjacent to the Lowell High School was settling and the railroad bed required regrading. The work involved the removal of approximately 500 feet of railroad track and railroad ties, the regrading and compacting of the railroad bed and the replacement of the track ties and rails. Watermark services included demolition, rough carpentry, site work and railroad track repair/replacement.
