MassDOT District Office #1 Closes Pedestrian Walkway on Iron Bridge

Updated: September 16, 2021

MassDOT District #1 has notified the towns of Buckland and Shelburne of a structural deficiency that was discovered yesterday during a routine bridge inspection. As a result of that discovery, the pedestrian walkway on the south side of the bridge will remain closed until the repairs can be made. The iron bridge that spans between the towns of Buckland and Shelburne is owned and maintained by the Massachusetts Department of Transportation. Given the current demands on MassDOT and Fall weather fast approaching, the repair will most likely take place in the Spring of 2022. For more information, please contact MassDOT Highway Director, Francisca Heming at
