Overview   of NEW MARLBOROUGH - proposed project to rehabilitate the Campbell Falls Road bridge over the Whiting River.

A Design Public Hearing will be held by MassDOT to discuss the project that proposes to rehabilitate one bridge in the Town of New Marlborough, MA; Campbell Falls Road over the Whiting River.


The purpose of this hearing is to provide the public with the opportunity to become fully acquainted with the bridge rehabilitation project in New Marlborough. All views and comments made at the hearing will be reviewed and considered to the maximum extent possible.


The proposed project consists of the rehabilitation of the bridge structures that was constructed in 1938. The roadway surface, bridge railings, concrete deck and steel beams for each bridge will be replaced. The new structures will consist of steel beams with composite reinforced concrete decks.

The 42' long single span Campbell Falls Road bridge will increase the width of the existing bridge to 16’ curb to curb roadway width to match the approaches, and will consist of a single 16' shared travel lane. The existing abutments will be reused with modifications.

The bridge will be closed during construction and traffic will be detoured. Proposed approach roadway work includes the construction of full depth asphalt pavement and roadway resurfacing for approximately 175feet on the west approach and 150 feet on the east approach of the bridge. There will be no sidewalks on the proposed bridge or approach roadway.

There are no Right of Way impacts anticipated on this project.
