The Massachusetts Department of Transportation announced it will be implementing a temporary closure of the Moody Bridge located on Route 7 at Simons Road over the Hoosic River and Pan Am Railroad in Williamstown.

The bridge will be closed to all vehicles and pedestrian traffic from 6:00 p.m. on Friday, September 16, through 6:00 a.m. on Monday, September 19, to allow crews to safely and efficiently conduct bridge deck resurfacing operations.

Look for the detour that will be in place to direct traffic to follow Route 2, Mohawk Trail to Cole Avenue to North Hoosac Road to Bridges Road to Sand Springs Road.
