norton-plain-street-bridgeMassDOT has announced a major milestone in the $1.8 million project to replace the bridge carrying Plain Street over the Canoe River in Norton. The new bridge is now open to traffic.

The original bridge, which was constructed in 1960, was structurally deficient and in need of replacement. The new bridge is a precast concrete deck beam superstructure spanning 36.5 feet with driven steel pile foundations.

The new bridge includes sidewalks and has a higher vertical clearance over the Canoe River to allow for a more comfortable passage for kayakers and canoers.

Construction for this project began in April 2016. MassDOT appreciates the patience of the public during the construction and looks forward to completing “next steps” including landscaping.
