If you live in Conway, you may have seen recently published public hearing notices regarding the upcoming replacement of the southern most bridge along North Poland Road that crosses Poland Brook. As part of Governor Patrick's Accelerated Bridge Program, (ABP), this project will use accelerated bridge construction techniques in order to minimize construction-related traffic impacts. The currently proposed bridge replacement will implement prefabricated superstructure and substructure elements, eliminating the need for winter bridge closures and road closures. The accelerated techniques that ABP is proposing are also being further investigated to determine the feasibility of limiting bridge and road closure to coincide with the school summer vacation.
MassDOT will hold a public hearing for this project this week. Public hearings are a valuable opportunity for people to learn about a project; ask and get answers to questions; and provide feedback to MassDOT.
The meeting is as follows:
Conway Town Hall, 5 Academy Hill Road, Thursday, August 19, 7:00 PM
Please visit MassDOT on the web here and use the calendar feature to see the meeting notices for these projects or for a road or bridge project near you.
