Woodland Street Traffic Detour For The Foreseeable Future
As of last month, Woodland Street traffic will be detoured for the foreseeable future while work is planned and performed on the bridge/culvert located at the Factory Pond Dam (across from the 8 Arch Bridge).
When accessing Woodland Street from the northern end – Washington Street (Rt. 16/126) – traffic will be detoured at Lowland Street.
When accessing Woodland Street from the southern end – area of Central Street and Linden Street – traffic will progress no further than the school complex at Placentino & Miller Elementary Schools.
Though the long-term replacement of this bridge was already in the planning stages, the current state of the bridge requires closure until further notice, per MassDOTand the town’s independent engineering consultant, PARE Corp.
