River Street Bridge Project Update

There have been some complaints regarding traffic control at the River St. bridge project and the Selectmen have been in contact with the engineer regarding this issue.

The situation with the sequencing of the lights has been corrected. The engineer has informed the contractor that per the terms of our contract, at least one lane of the existing bridge and River Street must remain open at all times unless written authorization, after review by the Selectmen, is obtained from the engineer. If full stoppage of traffic is necessary, a minimum of 48 hours notice (more if possible) is required.

We are sorry for any inconvenience but we are hopeful that this will address the problem. This is a big and important project and your patience and understanding is appreciated. However, if problems arise, please feel free to contact our office.
