Overview   of New Marlborough - Bridge Replacement - Keyes Hill Road over Umpachene River

A Live Virtual Design Public Hearing/Public Information Meeting will be hosted on the MassDOT website below to present the design for the proposed Bridge Replacement: Keyes Hill Road over Umpachene River project in New Marlborough, MA.


The purpose of this hearing is to provide the public with the opportunity to become fully acquainted with the proposed Bridge Replacement, N-08-020, Keyes Hill Road over Umpachene River project.  All views and comments submitted in response to the meeting will be reviewed and considered to the maximum extent possible.


The proposed project consists of the replacement of an existing one-span, multi-steel beam superstructure supported on gravity concrete masonry abutments and wingwalls. The existing bridge span length is 42’-2” center to center bearings. The bridge carries one 14-foot lane of traffic but is used for 2-way direction. The project will reconstruct full depth highway pavement, construct highway guardrail transition, and replace highway guardrails. In addition, the improvement will consist of converting the 14-foot lane to two 9-foot lanes. This change will not modify the roadway geometry in horizontal alignment but little vertical profile adjustment, roadway alignment will remain the same as the existing. Pedestrian and bicycle accommodations will not be part of the project. A detour will be required during the construction.

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

Project inquiries, written statements and other exhibits regarding the proposed undertaking may be submitted to Carrie E. Lavallee, P.E., Acting Chief Engineer, via e-mail to or via US Mail to Suite 6340, 10 Park Plaza, Boston, MA 02116, Attention: Major Projects, Project File No. 609078.
