Fore River Bridge 5K
Celebrate the opening of the Fore River Bridge by participating in the Fore River Bridge 5K! This unique running event is a point to point 5k (3.2 mile) run starting at the Hingham Shipyard Complex Ferry Commuter Parking Area and finishing right in the center of the new Fore River Bridge!
The Fore River Bridge is a bridge which spans the Weymouth Fore River in Quincy and Weymouth, Massachusetts. It is adjacent to the former Fore River Shipyard and new construction should be completed by the Fall of 2017. The new bridge will be the third movable bridge at this location, the first being a swing bridge constructed in the early 20th century. The 1902 swing bridge was replaced by a bascule bridge in 1936 which lasted until 2002 when a temporary bridge was constructed until the new bridge could be built.
