Falling concrete closes portion of Route 85

Above: The Mass Pike overpass before it was repaired earlier this year

Southborough Police last night closed a 1-mile stretch of Route 85 after “brick-sized” pieces of concrete fell from the Mass Pike overpass onto the roadway, reports the Metrowest Daily News. The report says no one saw the concrete fall, and no one was injured.

MassDOT was called in, and engineers chipped away loose sections of concrete. You might remember MassDOT completed restoration work on the bridge earlier this year.

I’m so glad MassDOT did such a good job with the rennovation and repair work earlier this year that chunks of concrete are now falling off of the underpass where they could injure or kill drivers or pedestrians or at minimum, damage people’s cars.
