From the Mass. Department of Transportation:
MassDOT Advisory: Dennis
Old Bass River Road Bridge Temporarily Closed To Traffic
DENNIS – The Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) is announcing the Old Bass River Road Bridge in Dennis above Route 6 has been damaged in a traffic incident and is being closed.
A preliminary evaluation has found that two of the bridge beams have been severed, and there may be additional damage. MassDOT bridge inspection crews are on site to evaluate the bridge structure. Engineers will need to assess the repairs which will be necessary.
At this time, MassDOT has no time estimate for when the Old Bass River Road Bridge may reopen for travel.
Tonight, at approximately 6 p.m., a truck carrying an item and traveling on Route 6 westbound struck the bridge above Route 6 travel lanes.
(The photograph below was taken tonight looking westbound on Route 6 at the underside of the Old Bass River Road Bridge and shows two bridge beams which have been damaged.)
