Starting Wednesday morning, Greenfield drivers will no longer be able to drive over the Nash’s Mill Road Bridge.
The Nash’s Mill Road Bridge goes over the Green River in Greenfield and has been down to single lane/alternating traffic since 2013 when the north side of the bridge was deemed structurally unsafe.
“That has been like that for quite a while and its just going to be good to have it done,” said Jeanne Hall of Greenfield.
The project includes the demolition and replacement of the existing bridge, reconstructing approaches, and a new sidewalk.
The Nash’s Mill Road Bridge project will replace the current bridge with a much wider, 105-foot steel beam bridge. The city said this project will take some time, but they are pleased its finally being done.
“Its good to see the project move forward,” said Marlo Warner, Greenfield DPW Director Marlo Warner. “It will be a full bridge replacement, that’s why the bridge has to be completely closed.”
Warner said the bridge replacement project will be completed by December 2019.
