A cutting-edge project is moving toward completion on Route 2 over Route 2A in Phillipston, funded by the Patrick-Murray Administration's historic Accelerated Bridge Program.
MassDOT’s design/build team set up temporary supports for a new superstructure being built to replace the structurally-deficient bridge that carries Route 2 over Route 2A. When complete later this month, the new superstructure will be moved along a special rail system into place, a procedure is known as a “slide-in”.
Check out this quick video to learn more about how MassDOT is replacing the bridge.
