MassDOT crews successfully performed the Route 2 Heavy Lift “Bridge Move” installation in the early morning hours today, October 28, 2010.
The bridge is seen at left being moved into place as of 3:30am.
In the second photo below, the bridge is in place as of 6:30 am.
During the past several weeks, a bridge superstructure has taken shape right next to the intersection of Route 2 and Route 2A in Phillipston. Earlier this week, crews demolished the old bridge that carried Route 2 over Route 2A.
Detours remain in place but will for a much shorter period typical for a bridge project. By building the replacement superstructure away from Route 2, MassDOT limited the Route 2 impact.
