Overview of Lenox - Design Public Hearing Webinar

A Design Public Hearing Webinar will be published on the MassDOT website to present the design for the proposed Bridge Superstructure Replacement on Roaring Brook Road Over Roaring Brook project in Lenox, MA.


The purpose of this hearing webinar is to provide the public with the opportunity to become fully acquainted with the proposed Bridge Superstructure Replacement on Roaring Brook Road Over Roaring Brook project. All views and comments submitted in response to the webinar will be reviewed and considered to the maximum extent possible.


The proposed project consists of bridge superstructure replacement for the Roaring Brook Road Over Roaring Brook. The work will include the removal and replacement of the existing bridge superstructure; reuse and repair the existing substructure; and reconstruct the approach roadway. The Roaring Brook Road Traffic during the entire construction will be accommodated with single lane bi-directional service controlled by temporary traffic lights with the town police onsite during the construction workhours. The proposed bridge curb to curb width will be 25 feet 7 inches and tapered to meet the existing approach roadway. Bicycle and pedestrian accommodations are not included in this project.

A secure right-of-way is necessary for this project. Acquisitions in fee and permanent or temporary easements may be required. The town is responsible for acquiring all needed rights in private or public lands. MassDOT’s policy concerning land acquisitions will be presented in the webinar.
