Route 2 Irene Damage 1 A portion of Route 2 that suffered significant damage due to flooding from Tropical Storm Irene remains closed from Mile Marker 21.6 in Florida to Mile Marker 27.5 in Charlemont.

Damage along the closed portion of Route 2 includes severe slope failures, roadway undermining and instability, eroded bridge approaches, mud slides, and culvert and retaining wall damage.

At Route 2 Mile Marker 25, flooding caused a river channel to relocate where the roadway and abutting rest area previously existed. 

The magnitude of the damage and significant repairs necessary will require an extended period of time to restore the roadway. 

MassDOT is committed to an accelerated repair process, beginning with slope stabilization in North Adams and Florida along with temporary repairs for a 3.5 mile segment of Route 2 in Savoy. 

MassDOT anticipates bidding for accelerated construction contracts to complete the reconstruction of the roadway will begin immediately next week.
