Bridge No.06768, Rt.57 (Weston Rd.) over an unnamed brook, Broad St. & Good Hill Rd., Weston

The Department of Transportation (Department) will conduct a Public Information Meeting concerning replacement of Bridge No. 06768, which carries Route 57 (Weston Road) over an unnamed brook less than 100 ft. south of the intersection with Broad Street and Good Hill Road in the town of Weston.

 

The purpose of the project is to replace a deteriorated corrugated metal pipe with a new structure.  In addition, the proposed culvert will improve the hydraulic opening of the crossing.


There are right-of-way impacts associated with the proposed improvements.  Temporary construction easements impacting adjacent properties will be necessary for a sufficient work area.

 

The Department is proposing a complete road closure at the location of the culvert with a state road detour for a period of no more than 14 consecutive days. The Department plans to use the Accelerated Bridge Construction (ABC) method, which involves removing the existing structure and replacing it with prefabricated bridge components and elements which are connected in the field. The contractor will be given incentives by the state if the project is completed ahead of schedule and will incur fines and penalties if the project extends beyond the allowable 14 days.

 

Construction is anticipated to begin in summer 2020 based on the availability of funding.  The estimated construction cost for this project is approximately $1.3 million.  This project is anticipated to be undertaken with 80 percent Federal funds and 20 percent State funds.

 

The Public Information Meeting is being held to afford a full opportunity for public participation and to allow open discussion of any views and comments the community may have concerning this proposed project.
