Overview of WILLIAMSBURG - proposed bridge replacement of 2 bridges, Bridge Street over Mill River and South Main Street over Mill River

A Public Informational Meeting will be held by MassDOT to discuss the proposed Bridge Replacement project in Williamsburg, MA.

Purpose:

The purpose of this meeting is to provide the public with the opportunity to become fully acquainted with the proposed Bridge Replacement Project of two Bridges, Br. W-36-011 and W-36-017, Bridge Street over Mill River and South Main Street over Mill River. All views and comments made at the meeting will be reviewed and considered to the maximum extent possible.

Proposal:

The proposed project consists of replacing the Bridge Street and South Main Street bridges over the Mill River and rebuilding the portion of South Main Street between the two bridges. The traffic pattern in the area will be revised such that in the final condition, both bridges and the section of the South Main Street between the two bridges will create a one-way loop. Shared use accommodations will be added to the South Main Street bridge and extend through the reconstructed portion of South Main Street in accordance with applicable design guides.

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 discussed at this meeting.

Written views received by MassDOT subsequent to the date of this notice and up to five (5) days prior to the date of the meeting shall be displayed for public inspection and copying at the time and date listed above. Plans will be on display one-half hour before the meeting begins, with an engineer in attendance to answer questions regarding this project.
