Craigie Drawbridge MassDOT has scheduled a Public Information Meeting for the Craigie Drawbridge Rehabilitation Project:

Thursday, October 7, 6:30–8:30 PM

The Museum of Science- Cahners Theater, 1 Science Park, Boston

The meeting will provide an overview of the construction plans and traffic impacts and answer questions about the replacement of the Craigie Drawbridge, which carries McGrath O’Brien Highway (Route 28) between Land Blvd. in Cambridge and Leverett Circle in Boston.

The Craigie Drawbridge Rehabilitation Project is part of the Patrick-Murray Administration's historic Accelerated Bridge Program to rebuild structurally deficient bridges across the Commonwealth. This project includes the complete replacement of the bridge superstructure and bridge deck as well as the machinery and electrical components. During construction temporary bridge structures will be utilized to carry traffic. Work is expected to begin in early November 2010.

To be added to the project email or US Mail distribution lists, please contact Stephanie Boundy, at 617-973-8049 or Stephanie.Boundy@state.ma.us.
