Corps of Engineers awards $234,250 contract for spillway bridge repair at Tully Lake dam in Royalston

Published Sept. 8, 2015

CONCORD, Mass. Repairs to the spillway bridge at Tully Lake dam in Royalston, Mass., will be completed under the terms of a $234,250.00 contract recently awarded by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New England District. Work will be accomplished by Aetna Bridge Company of Warwick, Rhode Island. The contract was awarded on Aug. 27, 2015.


Work on the bridge involves cutting and removal of failed concrete on the existing deck, bridge joints and sidewalk; placement of rapid-set concrete into the patch areas, which include deck, bridge joints and sidewalk; placement of a concrete sealer and epoxy sealant over the top of the entire bridge deck; and use of extensive traffic control since this is a heavily used public way.


Work is anticipated to begin in the fall of 2015 and take approximately four months to complete. The project will be managed by the Corps and all work will be accomplished under the supervision of a Corps’ Quality Assurance Representative to assure compliance with contract requirements.


Tully Lake dam, situated on the East Branch of the Tully River in Royalston, is 1,570 feet long and 62 feet high. Completed in 1949 at a cost of $1.7 million, the dam has a reservoir storage capacity of 7.1 billion gallons of water. Tully Lake has prevented flood damages of $28.1 million. More than 100,000 visitors annually enjoy picnicking, hiking, boating, mountain biking, disc golfing, fishing, hunting and cross country skiing in season at Tully Lake.
