The Hammond Hill Road Bridge over the Little River was identified as structurally deficient and closed for repairs in late August. MassHighway contractors with assistance from the Town repaired deteriorated beams, installed new concrete deck, improved sidewalks, and replaced the bridge railings and approach.
