Town of Colrain Bridge Replacement Designs
BSC was selected by the Town of Colrain to complete full bridge replacement designs for the Adamsville Road Over Tisdell Brook Bridge and Call Road over Fox Brook. Prior to these awards, BSC had previously partnered with the Town to prepare MassDOT Small Bridge Municipal and MassWorks Infrastructure grant applications, through which funding was secured for the projects. With funding secured BSC designed and permitted both bridges, which was put out for construction in the spring of 2019. As part of the replacement designs, BSC provided hydraulic analysis, structural engineering, traffic engineering, survey, highway engineering and environmental permitting services. Construction methods, including the use of prefabricated/precast bridge components, accelerated construction schedules and staged construction, were investigated to balance both cost and construction duration.
