Given the condition being poor and the likelihood of replacement along with the rising tides can we strongly consider a lock system bridge? Only on extreme high tides will the lock need to be closed. Given the millions of dollars in homes along the Danvers / Beverly waterfront along along with impending rising water levels, putting in this system will protect so many families while providing a modern bridge for the next 100 years

The roadway was given a fresh gravel/bitumen surface in 2016. I don't believe the existing 2013 surface was stripped off first.

In the past year, the asphalt ? Surface has been in disrepair, leaving vehicles driving over irrational surface, between the asphalt and wooden timber underlay. Just this past month, September 2013, the wooden surface was completely stripped of the poor coating , and resurfaced with some special asphalt coating. A 100% better surface.
