(FOX 25 / MyFoxBoston.com) - While hundreds of Massachusetts bridges are in need of serious repairs, one bridge is being replaced even though nothing heavier than a horse is expected to go over it. The span known as the horse bridge crosses over Route 24 in Randolph and is being rebuilt for $4.6 million, up from its original price tag of $2.6 million. It connects one portion of the 238-acre Blue Hills Reservation with another... It's potentially used by the 30 or so horses at Mullin's farm and by about 20 horses at a neighboring farm. That means the state is paying about $92,000 per horse to fund the $4.6 million dollar horse bridge. Frank Tramontozzi, the chief engineer for the Massachusetts Department of Transportation, said the project wasn't a waste of money because the old bridge was structurally deficient. High cost for horse bridge eyed what a joke the commonwealth is.
