CHICOPEE- BRIDGE REHABILITATION , C-13-008, ROUTE 116 (SPRINGFIELD STREET) OVER THE CHICOPEE RIVER (AKA - DAVITT MEMORIAL BRIDGE) & BRIDGE REHABILITATION, C-13-007, ROUTE 116 (SPRINGFIELD STREET) OVER DWIGHT MFG. CANAL
The purpose of the proposed project is to rehabilitate the existing Route 116 bridge over the Chicopee River and rehabilitate the adjacent Route 116 bridge over the Dwight Manufacturer’s Canal. For C13008, the existing concrete arch superstructure will be replaced with a steel girder bridge superstructure on new concrete piers to be built on retained existing footings and modified abutments on existing footings. For C13007, deteriorating concrete T-Beams shall be replaced, and the existing cross-section for both structures will be retained. Traffic will be detoured to expedite the construction phase. New sidewalks will be provided. Minimal approach roadway work will be performed to meet the existing cross section. Additional improvements include new pavement markings, historic street lighting and new signage.
