Wednesday, January 24, 6:30pm, Chelsea City Hall, Council Chamber, 500 Broadway.

All views and comments made at the hearing will be reviewed and considered to the maximum extent possible.

The proposed project would replace the roadway surface and deck of the Chelsea Viaduct in addition to repairs to the viaduct’s foundations and support columns. The project also proposes to improve drainage from the viaduct as well as roadway lighting both on the elevated section of Route 1 and local roadways which pass under the structure.

Plans will be on display one-half hour before the hearing begins, with an engineer in attendance to answer questions regarding this project. A project handout is available at the project website.
