WEST SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – By the end of this year, the Route 20 bridge over the railroad tracks in West Springfield will be finished.
The two year project is being undertaken to allow the passage of double decker freight cars down the tracks by next year. The construction has caused a lot of inconvenience for drivers who make the trip from West Springfield to Westfield regularly.
West Springfield town engineer Jim Lyons told 22News that crews are paving the roads as the final portion of the construction.
The new bridge will include four lanes taking traffic east from West Springfield to Westfield. 22News spoke with residents in both towns who said they’re very happy by to know the bridge is expected to finish by the end of 2014.
