Swedish Transport Administration officials visiting Massachusetts this month received a tour and briefing from MassDOT project managers on the site of award-winning work performed along Route 2 in Charlemont following Tropical Storm Irene in 2011.
MassDOT welcomed the Swedish delegation along with a student group from the College of Atlantic on the site visits, organized by the Massachusetts Division of Ecological Restoration.
Among the stops on the tour: replacement of the Route 2 bridge over Wilder Brook in Charlemont, including not only bridge work but also streambed restoration to improve the ecological make up of the brook.
The tour also included a review of repairs at Trout Brook in Charlemont, above, and the award-winning bridge replacement and stream restoration on McNearney Road over Shaker Mill Brook in Becket, left.
Congratulations to MassDOT Resident Engineers Tim Moore and Charles Najimy, Survey Engineer Ed Lausier, Project Development Engineer Mark Moore, and Environmental Analyst Tim Dexter for their involvement in explaining the successful work to restore both transportation infrastructure and the environment in the wake of the storm in western Massachusetts.
