Public Hearing Notice Petersham - Design Public Hearing webinar and comment period
Overview of Petersham - Design Public Hearing webinar and comment period
A Design Public Hearing Webinar will be published on the MassDOT website to present the design for the proposed Glen Valley Road over East Branch of the Swift River Bridge Replacement Project in Petersham, MA.
The purpose of this hearing webinar is to provide the public with the opportunity to become fully acquainted with the proposed Glen Valley Road over East Branch of the Swift River Bridge Replacement 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 removing the temporary truss bridge, constructing new abutments, constructing a new steel beam bridge, paving the road within the project limits, and installing guardrail. The final constructed road will be 18 feet wide supporting shared use for pedestrian, bicycle and vehicular traffic. The road will be closed during construction and a detour established. The detour is estimated to be in place for 12 months.
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.
Written views received by MassDOT subsequent to the date of this notice and up to five (5) days prior to the date of the webinar, plans and a project handout will be made available on the MassDOT website listed below.
