Stockbridge, Massachusetts has received a $1 million grant to repair a failing, heavily-traveled bridge on Route 183.
In May 2016, the state Department of Transportation gave the Larrywaug Bridge a rating of a 3 out of a possible 10 points.
The bridge, erected in 1931, is on a busy route between Stockbridge and Lenox, just north of the state highway and Route 102.
In March, Stockbridge received $500,000 from the state’s Small Bridge Program. After further inspections, MassWorks on Tuesday announced an additional $1 million from its Small Town Rural Assistance Program to replace the bridge.
The project will cost about $2.6 million. Construction will begin next year.
