Morton Street BridgeMassDOT has scheduled a public information meeting regarding the Morton Street Bridge Project as follows:

Thursday, July 10, 6:00 – 7:30 PM, Economy Plumbing- Training Room, 875 Morton Street, Mattapan

The purpose of this meeting will be to discuss the 10 day closure of the bridge scheduled for August 8-18.

MassDOT’s Highway Division is constructing a new single span bridge to replace the structurally deficient bridge carrying Morton Street across the MBTA Commuter Rail Tracks in Mattapan. MassDOT used Accelerated Bridge Construction methods to minimize construction impacts. The new bridge structure has been constructed adjacent to the crossing and will be moved into place in one piece.

MassDOT will close the Morton Street Bridge for the final demolition and installation of the new bridge. The bridge will close for the move at 10:00 PM on Friday August 8, 2014 and will reopen at or before 5:00 AM Monday August 18, 2014. A fully accessible pedestrian crossing will be in place while the bridge is closed.

For more information, please contact John Romano, 857-368-8905 or john.romano@state.ma.us.
