Next week MassDOT will hold public meetings regarding two design-build projects that will utilize rapid construction methods to minimize construction-related congestion and complete construction safely and quickly.

•    A design public hearing will be held on Wednesday, August 4th, 7pm, Council Chambers, City Hall, 15 Summer Street, Taunton, regarding the replacement of the superstructure in Taunton that carries Holloway Street over Route 140 northbound. This hearing will also discuss the replacement of the sidewalks and repaving which is proposed to occur on the bridge that carries Holloway Street over Route 140’s southbound lanes.

•    On Thursday, August 5th, 7pm, Phillipston Town Hall, 50 The Common, Phillipston, MassDOT will hold a design public hearing to discuss the proposed replacement of the bridge that carries Route 2 over State Road (Route 2A) in Phillipston.

At MassDOT we’re thinking and working outside the box to improve the state’s bridges economically and with the least disruption to your travelling life. In order to accomplish this, the Accelerated Bridge Program is streamlining internal processes, using innovative project management such as design-build, using cutting-edge technologies, and employing creative project delivery methods.

Please visit www.mass.gov/massdot and use the calendar to view details such as the time and location of these and other upcoming events.
