The Patrick Administration has given formal approval to a $933,529 project to replace the Norfolk Road Bridge over Sandy Brook in Sandisfield.

“This is an important example of the many road and bridge projects continuing to move forward across the Commonwealth as MassHighway focuses on streamlined project delivery,” said Transportation Secretary Bernard Cohen.

The project involves demolition of the existing superstructure and partial demolition of the substructure, reconstruction of bridge approaches, highway guardrail, and other incidental work.

“MassHighway is pleased to announce the beginning of construction on this project,” said MassHighway Commissioner Luisa Paiewonsky. “Our top infrastructure priorities are bridge repair and road resurfacing projects.”

“Keeping our byways and bridges safe and efficient is one of the fundamental responsibilities of the Executive Office of Transportation,” said state Senator Benjamin B. Downing, D-Pittsfield. “This funding will address traveler safety, providing for the replacement of the Norfolk Bridge.”

“These are much needed improvements that will provide not only public safety but also will help kick start local construction projects,” said state Representative William “Smitty” Pignatelli, D-Lenox.

The bridge will be closed during construction and a 1.8-mi. (2.9 km) detour will be posted. The state’s contractor on the project is J.H. Maxymillian Inc. of Pittsfield. The projected completion date is June 2010.
