Westfield- Great River NEW Bridge, April 2011 MassDOT contractors are making major progress on the critical Great River Bridge project in Westfield.  The $57 million project is building a new three-lane bridge carrying Route 10/202 over the Westfield River, while reconstructing the existing three-lane bridge. 

The new bridge, left above, is located 150 feet east of the existing bridge and is now complete and carrying all traffic.  Work continues on the existing bridge, below left. 

When the project is complete in fall 2011, each bridge will carry one-way traffic, easing traffic congestion on Route 10/202. The single original bridge is one of only two crossings over the Westfield River within the city and a Westfield- Great River Existing Bridge Rehab, April 2011 major transportation artery, carrying more than 33,000 vehicles daily.

The project also includes increased clearance beneath a railroad viaduct, which will end an existing bottleneck that causes truck detours, along with a riverfront park and expanded municipal parking.
