Fore_River_Temporary_Bridge A Public Information Meeting for the Fore River Bridge Replacement Project is scheduled for:

Monday, April 12, 6:30 – 8:30 PM
Fore River Club House, 16 Nevada Road, Quincy

The purpose of this meeting is to present the Fore River Bridge Replacement project and the different bridge types being evaluated as part of the design and federal NEPA environmental review process. The project team will summarize comments received to date and MassDOT staff will answer questions.

The replacement of the Fore River Bridge, which carries Route 3A over the Fore River between Quincy and Weymouth, is part of Governor Patrick's 8-year, $3 billion Accelerated Bridge Program (ABP).  This is one of the most significant ABP projects being undertaken by MassDOT.  The result will be a permanent, movable bridge to replace the current temporary span.

If you have questions or would like more information about the project, please contact Mike O’Dowd at 617-973-7475.  To be added to the project email or US Mail distribution lists, please contact Stephanie Boundy at 617-973-8049 or at
