Lieutenant Governor Murray today joined state and local leaders in East Brookfield to highlight the repair of the structurally-deficient Route 9 Bridge over Lake Lashaway and reconstruction of the deteriorated Town-owned dam spillway located at the bridge site.
The $365,000 bridge and dam project began in 2010 as a partnership between the Massachusetts Department of Transportation and Town of East Brookfield. The Lake Lashaway water level was lowered in fall 2010 to allow for structural repair of the Route 9 Bridge and reconstruction of the concrete dam spillway below.
The work will continue in 2011 with paving of the bridge road surface and repairs to sidewalks and guard rails. Completion is expected in summer 2011.
