The existing Mirimichi Bridge is structurally deficient. The replacement of the Mirimichi Bridge will include the removal of the existing bridge; construction of a new concrete bridge, with guardrails and appropriate signage.
The Plainville Department of Public Works would like to advise residents, motorists and pedestrians that the temporary closure of the Mirimichi Bridge began on Monday, September 23, 2019.

Variable message signs have been deployed in the area to alert commuters of the closure. Construction activities will take place Monday through Friday between the hours of 7:00AM and 4:00PM (weather permitting) with detours in effect.
Temporary Traffic Management Plan
