Easthampton, Manhan Bridge, October 28, 2013MassDOT Highway Administrator Frank DePaola today joined state and local officials, MassDOT staff members, and local and local business leaders to celebrate the opening of the Manhan Bridge in Easthampton.

The Route 10 Manhan Bridge in Easthampton opened to traffic five weeks ahead of schedule on Thursday, October 24.  Final project utility and landscaping work will continue through spring 2014.

The project used accelerated construction techniques as part of the Patrick Administration’s Accelerated Bridge Program and an incentive/disincentive contract clause to keep the project on or ahead of schedule.
