6:30-8:30 PM – Public Information Meeting
Agassiz School Community Center
20 Child Street, Jamaica Plain
MassDOT is initiating a study of alternatives to replace the existing Monsignor William J. Casey Overpass, to be funded by the Patrick-Murray Administration's historic Accelerated Bridge Program to repair or replace structurally-deficient bridges.
The planning study phase will consist of an extensive public outreach process and include at-grade and structural solutions. The selected alternative will advance into design phase for construction.
The purpose of the Public Information meeting is to present the study goals and outline the public participation process for the project. Following the presentation, MassDOT staff will lead a discussion to gather public comments and answer questions.
As part of the study, MassDOT has formed a Casey Overpass Working Advisory Group. During the next 6 months, the Working Advisory Group will study and evaluate safe, accessible, multi-modal landscape, streetscape and transportation options that will lead to a project that can be completed by June 2016. Public Information Meetings will be held in sequence with Advisory Group meetings.
Learn more about the project by visiting the Casey Overpass website.
