MassDOT has scheduled a Public Information Meeting to discuss the completed Planning Study for the Casey Overpass Replacement Project in Jamaica Plain. The meeting details are as follows:
Thursday, March 29, 6:00-8:00 pm, English High School Auditorium, 144 McBride Street, Jamaica Plain
The purpose of this meeting is to present the alternative selected to replace the existing Casey Overpass that will be advanced into 25% design phase and the plan for public involvement and design development. Plans will be on display one-half hour before the hearing begins, with an engineer in attendance to answer questions.
The selection of the at-grade preferred alternative is the culmination of an extensive and public planning study process conducted over the past year as a collaborative effort between MassDOT, DCR, City of Boston, MBTA and a dedicated public Working Advisory Group.
The Casey Overpass Project will be designed and construction funded as part of the Patrick-Murray Administration's Accelerated Bridge Program to repair or replace structurally-deficient bridges across the Commonwealth.
