Bowker OverpassMassDOT has scheduled a public meeting for the Bowker Overpass Repair Project in Boston.  The Public Meeting has been scheduled as follows:

Tuesday, August 13, 6pm, Boston Public Library, Mezzanine Conference Room, 700 Boylston Street.

The purpose of this meeting is to provide the public with the opportunity to become fully acquainted with the proposed deck replacement and superstructure repairs on the Bowker Overpass over Beacon Street, Commonwealth Avenue and Muddy River in Boston.  Work is currently expected to begin in the spring of 2014.

The proposed project consists of interim repairs to the superstructure and deck of the Bowker Overpass and associated ramps. Accelerated deterioration of the bridge structures requires that these interim repairs be conducted during the preliminary phase of the Bowker Overpass Planning Study. Repairs will include beam repairs, pin-and-hanger-retrofits, partial deck replacement and partial parapet replacement.
