 Project File No. 608642

A Design Public Hearing will be held by MassDOT to discuss the project that proposes to rehabilitate three bridges in the Town of New Marlborough, Mass.; Norfolk Road over the Umpachene River, Lumbert Cross Road over the Umpachene River, and Canaan Southfield Road over the Umpachene River.

            The hearing will take place at the New Marlborough Town Hall, 807 Mill River Southfield Road, Mill River, MA 01244-0099, on June 19 at 6:30 p.m.     

            The purpose of this hearing is to provide the public with the opportunity to become fully acquainted with the multi bridge rehabilitation project in New Marlborough. All views and comments made at the hearing will be reviewed and considered to the maximum extent possible.

            The proposed project consists of the rehabilitation of three separate bridge structures that were constructed in 1939. The roadway surface, bridge railings, concrete deck and steel beams for each bridge will be replaced. The new structures will consist of steel beams with composite reinforced concrete decks as listed below:

            The 89’ long two span Norfolk Road bridge will match the existing 26’ curb to curb roadway width and will consist of two 11’ travel lanes with two 2’ wide shoulders. The existing abutments and pier will be reused;

            The 32’ long single span Lumbert Cross Road bridge will widen the existing 14’ curb to curb width to 22’ wide and will consist of two 9’ lanes with two 2’ wide shoulders. The existing abutments will be reused with modifications;

            The 36’ long single span Canaan Southfield Road bridge will match the existing 26’ curb to curb roadway width and will consist of two 9’ travel lanes with two 4’ wide shoulders. The existing abutments will be reused.

            Each bridge will be closed during construction and traffic will be detoured. Proposed approach roadway work includes the construction of full depth asphalt pavement and roadway resurfacing for approximately 100 feet at both approaches to each bridge. There will be no sidewalks on the proposed bridges or approach roadways.

            A secure right-of-way is necessary for this project. Acquisitions in fee and permanent or temporary easements may be required. The Town of Marlborough is responsible for acquiring all needed rights in private or public lands. MassDOT’s policy concerning land acquisitions will be discussed at this hearing.

            Written views received by MassDOT subsequent to the date of this notice and up to five (5) days prior to the date of the hearing shall be displayed for public inspection and copying at the time and date listed above. Plans will be on display one-half hour before the hearing begins, with an engineer in attendance to answer questions regarding this project. A project handout will be made available on the MassDOT website listed below.
