Temporary overnight closure of Route 183 bridge in Housatonic

Housatonic — The Massachusetts Department of Transportation Highway Division District 1 has announced that two temporary overnight closures of the Route 183 Park Street bridge over the Housatonic River in Housatonic have been scheduled for Wednesday, April 12, at 6 p.m., until Thursday, April 13, at 6 a.m. and Thursday, April 13, at 6 p.m. until Friday, April 14, at 6 a.m.

The closure of the bridge is to facilitate the partial removal of the existing concrete beams. A traffic management plan has been implemented that includes variable message boards to inform the public.

The signed detour utilizes Route 7, Route 102 and Route 183 in Great Barrington and Stockbridge. MassDOT advises motorists to seek alternate routes between the Great Barrington/Housatonic district and Stockbridge on Route 183 during these times. The schedule for this work is weather- and emergency-dependent and subject to change without notice.
