Dates to Remember

Internal Traffic Committee Meeting
with MassDOT & Washington St Bridge Project
August 28, 2013  ~  10:00 AM
Town Hall, Selectmen's Hearing Room

** Please send any comments in advance of the meeting
to Jennifer Burke, Town Planner at jburke@townofhudson.org 
for dissemination to the ITC.**






The Washington Street Bridge is a state-owned structurally deficient bridge.  Now in its very early stages of design, MassDOT and Jacobs Engineering presented  two different potential construction scenarios to the Town's Internal Traffic Committee (ITC) on October 26, 2012, to see if the Town had any concerns from a public safety point of view.  

The two construction scenarios had different detour routes, lane closures, construction durations & even final products.  While public safety is of primary concern, other concerns & impacts on the community should be noted.  

Many members of the public were in attendance, and no final descisions were made.  It was decided that more information and additional input was needed before any one construction scenario could be chosen over another.  MassDOT spoke about the project at an Economic Development Commission meeting on November 9, 2012, & at two Hudson Business Association meetings, one on November 19, 2012 & again on June 3, 2013.

After further investigation, MassDOT came back to ITC on August 7, 2013.  But there were still some questions left unanswered.  MassDOT returned to ITC on August 28, 2013, at which time the Town made its final recommendation.  It was determined that a longer construction time frame that maintained a southbound traffic lane was the most viable option.



NOTE:  This bridge is at least two years away from beginning construction, construction beginning in 2016 at the earliest.
