Work continues on a pedestrian bridge in Montague

Work still to be done includes installing signs and the bridge rail

MONTAGUE, Mass. (WWLP) – Crews were out for most of Tuesday working on a pedestrian bridge on Greenfield Road in Montague.

This pedestrian bridge goes over train tracks on the road that connects the Greenfield Road in Montague. Work that still needs to be done includes installing signs and the bridge rail, placing pavement markings, and paving on both the bridge and the approaches.

This project began a year ago. Drivers have been forced to use Hatchery Road, Turners Falls Road and Ferry Road for detours while Greenfield Road has been closed. Once it’s completed, bicyclists and pedestrians will be able to use the bridge to travel along this route.

The Massachusetts Department of Transportation said this bridge should be ready for use by August.
