MassDOT schedules temporary overnight closure of Route 183 bridge over Housatonic River
Great Barrington — The Massachusetts Department of Transportation Highway Division District 1 has announced that the Route 183 Park Street bridge over the Housatonic River will be temporarily closed from 6 p.m. on Thursday, March 30, until 6 a.m. on Friday, March 31.
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. This is the first of five proposed one-night closures necessary to complete the project.
The signed detour utilizes Route 7, Route 102 and Route 183 in towns of 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.
