The state Department of Transportation is holding a public hearing June 19 on the proposed replacement of the bridge carrying Plain Street over the Canoe River in Norton. The hearing, open to the public, will be held at 7 p.m. in the community room of the public library, 68 East Main St. The existing bridge, which incoporates three pipe culverts totaling about 20 feet long, has been deemed structurally deficient. The state expects to replace it with a 37-foot long single span. The project would also involve minor roadway reconstruction and resurfacing work approaching the bridge. Federal and state funds are covering the approximately $1.3 million cost. The session will provide attendees a chance to learn about the project and provide input into the design, which is 25 percent complete. Construction is scheduled to begin in the fall of 2015.
