Hudson, Houghton Street Bridge, October 22, 2012MassDOT and town officials in Hudson today broke ground on the the Houghton Street Bridge project.

The $2.87 million project includes complete reconstruction of the existing bridge along with construction of a temporary pedestrian bridge.  The project is expected to be complete in June 2014. 

“By forming partnerships like this with the town of Hudson, we are truly able to make positive changes for drivers, cyclists, and pedestrians – our customers – at the local level,” said Richard A. Davey, MassDOT Secretary and CEO.  “The Patrick-Murray Administration has made investment in our infrastructure a primary goal, and nowhere is that better displayed than here in Hudson.”

The town-owned bridge closed in 2006 following an inspection. 

“This bridge serves as a critical link for travel through and around the principal commercial district for Hudson,” said Frank DePaola, MassDOT Highway Administrator.  “Beyond that, it also highlights the role that MassDOT can play in helping to foster economic development and continued vitality by reopening that link and simplifying travel to and from Route 85.”

During reconstruction, vehicular travel will be rerouted via the existing detour in place.
