Town Parade Over New Bridge  

MassHighway Commissioner Luisa Paiewonsky today joined state and local officials, approximately 100 town residents and the entire high school marching band in the renaming of the reconstructed Central Street bridges in Millville in honor of lifelong resident John Dean. 

Senator Richard T. Moore, D-Uxbridge, and Representative Jennifer Callahan, D-Sutton joined the ceremonies honoring Dean, the town Highway Surveyor and champion of this important downtown construction project.

Dean worked with MassHighway to identify the deterioration of the five-bridge Millville Bridge system, assisted with the historically appropriate redesign and the reconstruction process, and worked with legislators to secure the necessary funding for the $8.2 million project on the only road that connects Millville’s north and south sides.

The Legislature last year approved a bill to rename the bridges the John Dean bridges. Dean has served the town since 1962 as a highway laborer, Highway Surveyor, a captain of the Millville Fire Department and member of the Millville Recreation Board.  

Today, the high school marching band played and marched with Dean across a bridge that now bears his name.
