AGAWAM & WEST SPRINGFIELD, MA — With the Morgan Sullivan Bridge carrying Memorial Avenue (Route 147) over the Westfield River connecting Agawam and West Springfield, MA in poor condition, the Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) enlisted Benesch to design a replacement. During preliminary design, it became clear the corridor was in need of more than just a new bridge.

Benesch Project Engineer Ashley Bomely, PE shared the evolution of the project and its complete streets elements with the Boston Society of Civil Engineers Section (BSCES) of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE). Read the story in the BSCES/ASCE newsletter.
