MassDOT’s design consultant will present the existing conditions analysis completed to date, and describe in detail how the study will identify the various gaps that preclude a seamless connection across the ten Charles River Basin bridges, their adjacent intersections and along the path system throughout the Charles River Reservation. Following the presentation, MassDOT and DCR staff will lead a discussion to answer questions and gather public comments.
The Charles River Basin Bridges are being reconstructed as part of the Patrick-Murray Administration's historic Accelerated Bridge Program to repair Commonwealth bridges.
