Casey Overpass MapA second construction update Public Information Meeting for the Casey Arborway Project has been scheduled as follows:

Monday, March 9, 7:00-9:00 PM, Boston English High School Auditorium, 144 McBride Street, Jamaica Plain

The purpose of this meeting will be to provide the Jamaica Plain community with an update on the progress made on the Casey Arborway Project since the construction kick-off session on January 21st. The meeting will also focus on the next approximately 90 days of construction operations including temporary roadway configurations and traffic controls. An overall schedule for the project will also be provided as will answers to questions asked at the last meeting regarding environmental controls and construction period traffic. This meeting will provide important details regarding construction and all residents, abutters, local business owners, and interested commuters are strongly encouraged to attend. In case of inclement weather, a snow date for this meeting has been set for Wednesday, March 11th at the same time and location.

This project consists of removing the existing structurally deficient 1,650’ Casey Overpass and replacing it with a simplified at-grade reconstructed roadway network. A new fully accessible Orange Line access/egress headhouse will replace the existing substandard exit only headhouse. Bicycle and pedestrian accommodations will be enhanced throughout the project limits. The Route 39 bus will be relocated to the reconstructed upper busway at Forest Hills Station. The project will result in the reconnection of the Arborway and Emerald Necklace Park from the Arnold Arboretum to Franklin Park.
