Blackstone Bridge Steel Work 30OCT09 The Town of Blackstone today celebrates MassHighway's reconstruction of the Route 122 Bridge over the Blackstone River and P&W Railroad.  The $2.9 million bridge project was completed this fall on time and under the original budget. 

The structurally deficient bridge required a full replacement of the superstructure, including beams and deck, along with relocation of all utilities- sewer, water, telephone, and gas.  The bridge carries more than 8,000 vehicles per day, so MassHighway's contractor phased construction to keep one lane of traffic open from the time construction began in spring 2008.

Learn more about projects managed by MassHighway, which becomes part of the new MassDOT Highway Division on November 1.
