PITTSFIELD — The Massachusetts Department of Transportation has announced that the bridge on Lakeway Drive over Onota Lake will be closed to traffic temporarily, beginning Monday.

The closure is necessary to allow for the total bridge replacement, which includes new precast abutments, precast beams, and railing and approach work.

A temporary signed detour will be in place during the closure to reroute traffic to Lakeway Drive north, on to Pecks Road, to Valentine Road and then to Lakeway Drive south until October.

The cost of the bridge rehabilitation project is $2,688,888, and work is anticipated to be completed in June. The contractor is New England Infrastructure of Hudson.

Drivers traveling through the area should reduce speed and use caution. All scheduled work is weather-dependent and might be impacted because of an emergency.
