The Fleury Bridge Project in Charlemont is one of just 15 projects in 13 states to receive a Federal Highway Administration grant award for using innovative construction technologies. The $285,000 award will support the $971,000 project, part of the Patrick-Murray Administration's historic Accelerated Bridge Program to repair structurally deficient bridges across the Commonwealth.
The Fleury Bridge carries Mountain Road over Hartwell Brook in Charlemont. The project now in design will replace the structurally-deficient bridge by using three precast concrete beams, reducing construction time by two-thirds to approximately six months. Construction is expected to begin in fall 2011.
U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood announced a total of $9.5 million for 15 projects that employ innovative construction technologies that more quickly and efficiently improve safety, reduce congestion and create high-quality, long-lasting highways and bridges.
MassDOT also received a $1 million grant toward the Medford I-93 Bridges project, replacing 14 bridge decks on I-93 in Medford during the summer 2011 construction season.
