NORTH STREET BRIDGE - March 06, 2018 UPDATE

As previously Indicated, due to a failure of a culvert opening, the southbound lane of North Street is temporarily closed.  Conservation Permitting for the project was granted on 4/2/18.  Bid Documents and cost estimating are currently ongoing, submittal and review of project by MassDOT will then occur and approval for use of Chapter 90 funds, then we put it out to competitive bid and then award the Contract.  Of course, after that, it will be constructed.  Our estimate is end of May to early June until the road is open again.  We apologize for any inconvenience.
