Fore River Bridge

A MassDOT Public Meeting for the Fore River Bridge Replacement Project is scheduled for:

Thursday, January 13, 2011, 6:30 – 9:30 PM, Fore River Club House, 16 Nevada Road, Quincy

The replacement of the Fore River Bridge, which carries Route 3A over the Fore River between Quincy and Weymouth, is part of Governor Deval Patrick's Accelerated Bridge Program to repair or replace structurally-deficient bridges across the Commonwealth. The Fore River Bridge Project is one of the largest in the program and when completed will create a permanent, movable bridge to replace the current temporary span.

The public meeting will present the Environmental Assessment for the Fore River Bridge Project.  The Assessment now available for public review is prepared to evaluate alternatives and impacts for the permanent replacement of the 1936 Fore River Bridge, which was demolished in 2004 and temporarily replaced with the existing movable lift bridge. The Assessment is available on the project website, www.mass.gov/massdot/foreriverbridge,  and at the Weymouth, Quincy, and Braintree public libraries. Public comments are due by January 26, 2011 and will be accepted during the meeting or may be mailed to the Federal Highway Administration and MassDOT as directed on the project website. Following the presentation, MassDOT staff will lead a discussion to gather comments and answer questions.

For more information about the Environmental Assessment, contact Michael Furlong at the Massachusetts Department of Transportation, 10 Park Plaza, Room 4260, Boston, MA 02116. Mike can also be reached at 617-973-8067 or Michael.Furlong@state.ma.us.

If you have questions, would like more information about the project, or would like to be
added to the project mailing list, please contact Stephanie Boundy, 617-973-8049 or at stephanie.boundy@state.ma.us.
