The Patrick-Murray Administration's innovative "Heavy Lift" bridge replacement project in Phillipston has received the Infrastructure Project of the Year Award for infrastructure projects valued at less than $10 million by the Construction Management Association of America, New England Chapter.
MassDOT's bridge installation on Route 2 in Phillipston in fall 2010 combined innovation and customer service.
A new bridge superstructure took shape right next to the intersection of Route 2 and Route 2A. Once complete, crews demolished the old bridge and moved the new bridge in place in a matter of hours.
The Patrick-Murray Administration's historic MassDOT Accelerated Bridge Program also received the Program Management of the Year award.
