April 7, 2017:
The contractor is scheduled to start work on April 24, 2017, weather permitting. They will begin clearing and preparing for the closing of Woods Road at the bridge location. Woods Road will be CLOSED from May 1 until August 15 for the construction of the bridge. A detour route will be signed along Route 109, Manchester Road, Route 100, and Melrose Road to access residences along Melrose Road. The north entrance to Rockwoods Reservation at Glencoe Road and Manchester Road will remain open during the construction for visitors to access Rockwoods Reservation.
This project will replace the deficient bridge on Woods Road located between Route 109 and the entrance to Rockwoods Reservation. A new bridge will be constructed in the same location as the existing bridge with a walkway along the north side with a concrete barrier wall to separate pedestrians from vehicles. The project is scheduled to be completed during the summer of 2017.
