COLRAIN, Mass. — The state Department of Transportation will close Route 112 to through traffic for approximately eight weeks beginning on Tuesday, Sept. 19.  
Bridge repair work will be conducted and will include removing the concrete wearing surface on two bridges and replacing the surface with a polymer modified concrete overlayment. 
Work will begin on the first bridge, located just south of the intersection of Route 112 and Charlemont Road, and will take approximately four weeks to complete.
Work will then begin on the second bridge, located just south of the intersection of Route 112 and Call Road, and will also take approximately four weeks to complete.
A signed detour will be in place for through-traffic utilizing Route 2 and Colrain/Shelburne Road and Greenfield Road.  Message boards are also being utilized to notify the travelling public. Updates will be provided when the work is completed at the first bridge and the work zone then moves to the second bridge. 
Drivers who are traveling through the affected areas should expect delays, reduce speed, and use caution.
