Town seeking ways to keep key bridges open during repairs

Great Barrington Town Manager Mark Pruhenski has indicated that construction repairs to the Brown Bridge will not hamper traffic flow to downtown and that it will remain a two-way bridge throughout the process.

GREAT BARRINGTON — Instead of crossing the bridge when they’ve come to it, town officials have taken a more proactive approach in bridge maintenance and repairs.

Great Barrington Town Manager Mark Pruhenski and Department of Public Works Superintendent Sean Van Deusen recently met with staff at the Lenox office of the Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) to voice concerns about keeping the state-owned Brown Bridge open.

Both Great Barrington officials were joined by state Rep. William “Smitty” Pignatelli, D-Lenox, and Patrick Carnavale, director of the Gov. Charlie Baker’s Western Massachusetts Office in Springfield.

“Our biggest concern, our priority is to keep this bridge open,” Pruhenski told members of the Selectboard during the board’s Monday, Dec. 16 meeting. “I think that message was heard loud and clear.”
