The purpose of this hearing is to provide the public with the opportunity to become fully acquainted with the proposed New Marlborough bridge replacement project on Umpachene Falls Road. All views and comments made at the hearing will be reviewed and considered to the maximum extent possible.
The proposed bridge project consists of the replacement of the existing single span steel 3-stringer bridge structure.

The bridge will be constructed in two stages so that pedestrian and bicycle access can be maintained throughout construction.

The proposed westside roadway approach width from the westerly project limits near Clayton Mill River Road varies from 22’-0”to 15’ ​​6”in width.
