Route 53 Culvert

Upgrading Aging Infrastructure

The aging culvert that held held Smelt Brook under The Landing was structurally unsound and in need of replacement. The Town of Weymouth is leading the project to replace the culvert that runs under Route 53 Washington/Commercial Street at Brookside Road in the Landing.

See the traffic presentation PDF from the Town and a video on the traffic management plan on the Town of Weymouth project website.

Work was completed on this culvert in early spring of 2020
