WEST SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – The Morgan-Sullivan Bridge replacement between West Springfield and Agawam has been an ongoing project since road work began in November of 2018.

The new bridge will have four lanes and 2-way bike lanes on the east side of the bridge. New sidewalks on the bridge as well as new sidewalks to the Doering Middle School and the Big E.
The project will include new turn-lanes at major intersections and traffic signals to three intersections:
