massdot_highway_logoThe MassDOT Board of Directors approved the awarding of a bridge construction contract to replace the Route 2 over Route 202 Bridge in Orange. The $18 million project will consist of three stages of construction to repair the current structurally-deficient bridge. The bridge will be widened during the work to address deterioration and the work is anticipated to be completed in three years.

“Projects like this one are critical to safely maintaining our transportation system,” said Highway Administrator Jonathan Gulliver. “I would like to thank the legislative delegation and local communities for their involvement to ensure this important project is completed, while providing proper access for the users of the roadway throughout construction.”

The replacement of this structurally deficient bridge is currently scheduled to be done in three phases. This phasing allows for minor traffic impacts by always providing one lane of traffic in each direction.
