If a bridge was too extreme, what else could have replaced it?


Most folks didn't know it was there, it's about a half mile down from Wendy's heading into Easton, there is a small intermittent stream that flows underneath. Apparently it was originally constructed entirely in red brick which was eroding.

There was a spot near the bridge where you could put a canoe or kayak in the water. Is the stream part of the Hocomock swamp or a part of the Canoe River?

The river on the West Bridgewater line is the mighty Queset (actually Cowesset then Hockomock once it leaves Easton. It travels south and flows into Lake Nippinicket. Behind the Charlie Horse there is a dirt road called Maple St off Pleasant St. You can park there and walk to Raynham. Maple St crossesthe Hockomock River and the power lines.

The canoe River is (or at least was) canoe-able from Plain St in Norton to lake Winnecunnet Pond but it takes some work to canoe the upstream sections.

The Snake River from WInnecunnet to Lake Sabatia is a better trip except you can hear the highway some of the time.

It just looks to me like they went elaborate on the whole project. They are doing more work there than just replacing the bridge.

Looks like they are installing sidewalks- which the state seems to have been doing on state roads for the past several years anytime an improvement project occurs

Did not know that sidewalks were part of the project, but it explains the size of the construction site.
