St. James Avenue Bridge shut down for repairs


SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – MassDOT has shut down the bridge that carries St. James Avenue northbound over the train tracks near I-291 Sunday night.

The bridge will be closed for the next several weeks so crews can make repairs.

A detour will be in place. The southbound lanes will remain open, but drivers should expect delays.

Northbound drivers on St. James Avenue who want to access I-291 will have to instead do so from the Page Boulevard (Exit 5) or Armory St (Exit 3) interchanges.
