19 km long Dhubri Phulbari Bridge is an under construction 4 lane bridge project over Brahmaputra River connecting Dhubri in Assam and Phulbari in Meghalaya.
The project’s civil construction work is being done by Larsen & Toubro (L&T) for the National Highways & Infrastructure Development Corp. Ltd (NHIDCL) and funded by Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA).
