The meeting will present the Fore River Bridge Replacement project and the two bridge types being evaluated as part of the 25% design process. The evaluation is being performed as part of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) review process. The project team will also summarize comments received to date and how they are being incorporated into the environmental assessment. MassDOT staff will answer questions and gather public comments.
The permanent, movable replacement of the Fore River Bridge carrying Route 3A over the Fore River between Quincy and Weymouth, is funded by Governor Patrick's historic 8-year, $3 billion Accelerated Bridge Program.
