Overview of Wareham - Bridge Replacement of Cranberry Highway / Mill Pond Dam over Agawam River - 4/25/23
A Live Virtual Design Public Hearing will be hosted on the MassDOT website below to present the design for the proposed replacement of Mill Pond Dam, Bridge No. W-06-020(8M1) project in Wareham, MA.
The purpose of this hearing is to provide the public with the opportunity to become fully acquainted with the proposed replacement of Mill Pond Dam (Cranberry Highway Route 6 westbound and State Route 28 northbound) over the Agawam River 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 reconstructing Mill Pond Dam to increase its capacity to pass larger storm flows. Additionally, the fish ladder will be replaced with a pool and weir type fish passage that will improve the migration ability for aquatic wildlife through the dam. The proposed project would replace the existing box culvert spillway with an arched crest spillway which directs flow under an approximately 50-foot span superstructure. Roadway improvements include two ADA compliant sidewalks and a bicycle lane on the north side of the roadway.
A secure right-of-way is necessary for this project. Acquisitions in fee and permanent or temporary easements may be required. The MassDOT 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., Chief Engineer, via e-mail to MassDOTProjectManagement@dot.state.ma.us or via US Mail to Suite 7550, 10 Park Plaza, Boston, MA 02116, Attention: Project Management, Project File No. 607871. Statements and exhibits intended for inclusion in the public hearing transcript must be emailed or postmarked no later than ten (10) business days (14 calendar days) after the hearing is hosted on the MassDOT website listed below.
