Herbert St., 2009 bridge
The Works Progress Administration (W.P.A.) conducted bridge work at Herbert St. and Beaver Dam Brook in Framingham, Mass. in 1939-40. According to the 1940 Town Report:
The old wooden bridge over the Beaver Dam Brook at Herbert Street, which had become unsafe, was replaced with a reinforced concrete structure, including new concrete abutments, wing walls and slab. Concrete curbing and sidewalks and bituminout concrete pavement were constructed on the approached to the new bridge.
