Thursday, February 9, 7pm, Adams Middle School Auditorium, 89 Middle Street, East Weymouth
The purpose of this hearing is to provide the public with the opportunity to become fully acquainted with the proposed bridge replacement alternative. All views and comments made at the hearing will be reviewed and considered to the maximum extent possible.
The proposed project funded by the Patrick-Murray Administration's historic Accelerated Bridge Program to repair or replace structurally-deficient bridges will replace the current temporary bridge with a new, movable span that will safely and efficiently meet the needs of motorists, cyclists, pedestrians and maritime users for the next 75 years. The new bridge will include two travel lanes, a bicycle accommodating shoulder and sidewalk in each direction. The project also includes removal of the temporary bridge.
Plans will be on display one-half hour before the hearing begins, with an engineer in attendance to answer questions regarding this project. For more information, visit the Fore River Bridge Project website.

Broderick, P.E., Acting Chief Engineer, MassDOT, 10 Park Plaza, Boston, MA 02116, ATTN: Michael O’Dowd, Project File No. 604382. Such submissions will also be accepted at the hearing.
