FRAMINGHAM, MA - The Central Street Bridge which spans the Sudbury River over the "Great Falls at Saxonville" is being removed and replaced, check for detours and construction delays.


12/27/14 - According to a large flashing construction sign by the School Street /  Concord Street intersection; the Central Street bridge will close on January 5th, 2015.

12/26/14 - traffic island at intersection of Central St. and Water St. removed, traffic signals and wiring being cleared for demolition.

Project Background:

The bridge replacement project is being performed by contractor under the direction of  The Massachusetts Department of Transportation, (MassDOT).  Construction schedules call for contractors to performed deconstruction and removal of the bridge starting in late December or early January and continuing through the winter months so that reconstruction may begin in the Spring of 2015.  MassDOT has established a deadline of August, 2015 for completion of the new bridge.

The current bridge is named for Anthony M. "Tony" Colonna, a former public servant and lifetime Framingham resident who served as a MA State Representative, (many tribute Tony with bringing two MassPike exits to Framingham), then as Head of the Public Works Department and a Magistrate, and eventually the Clerk of the Framingham District Court for many years.

The Central Street Bridge project was planned in coordination with the recently completed Wickford Street Bridge replacement so that traffic which would usually come into or leave  Saxonville via Central Street can be detoured over the Sudbury River using the Wickford Street Bridge.
