Bowker OverpassMassDOT will hold a Public Information Meeting to discuss the proposed deck replacement and superstructure repairs on the Bowker Overpass over Beacon Street, Commonwealth Avenue and the Muddy River in Boston. The meeting is scheduled as follows:

Monday, June 30, 6:00 pm, Boston Public Library, Johnson Conference Rooms, 700 Boylston Street

The meeting will include introduction of project contractor, SPS New England,  work schedule review, and update of the Bowker Overpass Long Range Planning Study.

The project includes interim repairs to the superstructure and deck of the Bowker Overpass and associated ramps. Accelerated deterioration of the bridge structures requires repairs be made during the preliminary phase of the Bowker Overpass Long Range Planning Study. Work will include beam repairs, pin-and-hanger-retrofits, partial deck replacement and partial parapet replacement. These repairs are necessary to provide safe passage over and under the structures and to avoid unnecessary emergency repairs.

Project inquiries may be emailed to dot.feedback.highway@state.ma.us
