A new state program has been successful in reducing the backlog of urgently needed repairs to Massachusetts bridges.  Innovative construction methods have reduced the amount of time it once took to make repairs.

   The Manhan River Bridge in Easthampton is one of the current projects in the  state’s 5-year- old $3 billion Accelerated Bridge Program.   MassDOT  Highway Administrator Frank DePaola said the program prioritizes repairing structurally deficient bridges.
