Overview of Monson - Design Public Hearing webinar and comment period

A Virtual Design Public Hearing will be published on the MassDOT website below to present the design for the proposed Old Wales Road over Conant Brook Bridge Replacement project in Monson, MA.


The purpose of this hearing is to provide the public with the opportunity to become fully acquainted with the proposed Bridge Replacement of Bridge No. M-27-015 carrying Old Wales Road over Conant Brook project. All views and comments submitted in response to the hearing will be reviewed and considered to the maximum extent possible.


The proposed project consists of the complete demolition of the existing single span bridge and replacement with a single span bridge consisting of precast, prestressed concrete spread deck beams supporting a concrete deck with an asphalt wearing surface. The proposed structure will be supported on concrete cantilever abutments at either end of the span. The bridge will carry two 11’-0” travel lanes and two 4’-0” usable shoulders. The overall bridge width will be 33’-3” with a span length of 26’-8”. There will also be roadway improvements to the bridge approaches including new guardrails, planted slopes, and modified drainage swales.

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