Project File No. 608125
A Design Public Hearing will be held by MassDOT to discuss the proposed Bridge Replacement Project on State Route 7A (Ashley Falls Road) over the Housatonic River in the Town of Sheffield, MA.
WHERE: Sheffield Town Hall, Selectmen’s Meeting Room on the 2nd floor
21 Depot Square
Sheffield, MA 01257 WHEN: Tuesday, June 6, 2017 @ 7:00 PM
PURPOSE: The purpose of this hearing is to provide the public with the opportunity to become fully acquainted with the proposed ST 7A (Ashley Falls Road) over Housatonic River bridge replacement project. All views and comments made at the hearing will be reviewed and considered to the maximum extent possible.
PROPOSAL: The proposed bridge project consists of the replacement of the existing single span steel bridge truss structure. The proposed new 125-foot Single Span Metalized Steel Plate Girder superstructure will be supported on stub abutments founded on drilled micropiles. The proposed bridge will have a 26-foot curb to curb roadway width for vehicular traffic with two 2-foot wide shoulders. There will be a single 5.5-foot wide sidewalk on the easterly side of the bridge. The bridge is currently closed and will continue to be closed during construction. The detour will remain as it is today and is approximately 3 miles in length. The detour for the northbound approach will send traffic east along West Stahl Road, north along Route 7, and back to Ashley Falls Road. Detour for the southbound approach will send traffic south along Route 7, west along West Stahl Road, and back to Ashley Falls Road. Proposed approach roadway work includes micromilling with resurfacing and full depth reconstruction for approximately 400 feet of southbound approach and approximately 600 feet of northbound approach. This includes minor intersection modifications at the West Stahl Road and ST 7A (Ashley Falls Road) intersection. The proposed approach roadway has a curb-to-curb width of 26’ 0”from West Stahl Road to the northern project limits. Sidewalk along the east side of the road begins just on the south side of the intersection with West Stahl Road and ends at a wheelchair ramp about 50’ north of the proposed bridge.
A secure right-of-way is necessary for this project. Acquisitions in fee and permanent or temporary easements may be required. The Town of Sheffield is responsible for acquiring all needed rights in private or public lands. MassDOT’s policy concerning land acquisitions will be discussed at this hearing.
