It’ll be another year before the Willimansett Bridge reopens

CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – The Massachusetts Department of Transportation announced Tuesday that the Willimansett Bridge that connects Chicopee and Holyoke is now expected to reopen in July 2015.

The bridge was originally closed in August of 2011 for extensive repairs but construction stopped this past September when the original contractor filed for bankruptcy.

State lawmakers said Tuesday that AIG and Northern Construction have reached an agreement that will restart work on the bridge immediately.
