...is how long the project is slated to take. Hopefully it won't be long before they realize that a temporary ramp arrangement is needed. Crossing from Cumberland Farms to Nichols Street last night was a floor-it-and-pray proposition. South Street is the Hubbardston access to route 2; now Main Street will carry Winchendon, North Ashburnham, etc. This situation is dangerous.

Only in MA does bridge repair work take years to
complete. Unlike other states, where bridges are rebuilt in 1-2 months. Like the Winter Street bridge in Waltham, MA, going on 9 YEARS now, and still not done.

PS How's the Mechanic Street bridge coming along...

Don't suppose you've been many places. We have work averaging 10 years for highway/bridge work in Virginia.

The bridge in waltham has only been under construction since 2005 not 2001. They are 65% done with completion expected in August 2011.

The Mechanic street bridge is complete and has been open for a couple of weeks. It took 4 years to complete. It's not only in MA, it happens everywhere.
