The 85-year-old Nash’s Mill Bridge in Greenfield will be closed starting October 31 and will stay closed until 2020.
Earlier this month, MassDOT announced that it will be replacing Nash’s Mill Bridge with a new 105-foot steel beam, single span bridge.
The project costs about $2.6 million and is currently expected to be completed by 2020.
Kirk Broga of Greenfield told 22News that the big problem he and other residents have is how long it will take to rebuild the bridge.
Broga said, “It’s a big inconvenience for most of us that need to go shopping over here at the Home Depot and The Big Y, and all these stores here because now you got to go through the middle of town.”
Broga noted that two years is a long time to not have this road opened.
The closure will go into effect around 7 a.m. or 8 a.m. Wednesday, and Nash’s Mill Road will remain closed until the bridge replacement is complete.
