MassDOT is hosting two Public Meetings for the Commonwealth Ave Bridge Replacement Project as follows:

Wednesday, July 18, 6:30 PM, Morse School, Auditorium, 40 Granite Street, Cambridge, MA

MassDOT and project team staff will describe the Summer 2018 Construction Shutdown from July 26 – August 11 in detail, review detour routes, and respond to questions. During the shutdown, there will be significant service impacts to all modes of transportation along Commonwealth Avenue and the BU Bridge in the BU/Saint Paul Street/Cambridgeport neighborhoods and on I-90 (Mass Pike). Download the meeting flyer in English, Spanish, Portuguese, Vietnamese, or Chinese for more information.

The same presentation will be delivered at both meetings, so participants may choose the most convenient date or location.
