Berkley, Padelford Street Bridge Opening, August 18, 2014MassDOT’s Highway Division Administrator Frank DePaola today joined state and local officials in celebrating the opening of the new Padelford Street Bridge in Berkley.  The $5.65 million project used fast track “Design Build” rapid construction techniques to replace the bridge structure.

The result: a limited four week roadway closure minimizing impact to traffic and the environment.

The project replaced the existing deteriorated 1964 bridge with a two span steel beam bridge providing one travel lane in each direction along with a six and a half foot sidewalk on the north side and five foot shoulders located along both sides of the roadway to accommodate for bicycle and pedestrian travel.

Final utility relocations and the resurfacing of Route 24 will be completed over the next two weeks.
