A Design Public Hearing on the project is scheduled for tonight, January 4, 7pm, at Wellesley Town Hall, 525 Washington Street. The hearing provides the public an opportunity to learn more about the proposed bridge superstructure replacement project. All views and comments made at the hearing will be reviewed and considered to the maximum extent possible.
The Cedar Street Bridge replacement project is funded by the Patrick-Murray Administration's historic, eight-year Accelerated Bridge Program to repair and replace structurally-deficient bridges.
The project will replace the bridge superstructure and restore the structural integrity of the bridge for many years to come and increase the vertical clearance under the bridge.
Accelerated bridge construction techniques will minimize the duration of construction and impacts on the travelling public. The replacement superstructure will be prefabricated on site to allow for demolition of the existing superstructure and placement of the new superstructure within a 72-hour period over the July 4th weekend, 2011.
The Commonwealth's first "Heavy Lift" Bridge project in fall 2010 replaced the structurally deficient bridge carrying Route 2 over Route 2A in Phillipston.
Written statements regarding the proposed project in Wellesley may be submitted to Frank A. Tramontozzi, P.E., Chief Engineer, MassDOT – Highway Division, 10 Park Plaza, Boston, MA 02116. Project inquiries may be emailed to email@example.com.
