MassDOT has scheduled a Public Information Meeting for the Longfellow Bridge Rehabilitation Project:
Tuesday, April 9, 6:30–8:30 PM, Shriners Hospitals for Children Auditorium, 51 Blossom Street, Boston
The purpose of this meeting is to present details on the Longfellow Bridge Rehabilitation design/build project, including traffic management plans and schedule. MassDOT and contractor staff from White-Skanska-Consigli J.V. (WSC) will be available to receive public comments and answer questions.
The rehabilitation will address the bridge's current structural deficiencies, upgrade structural capacity, and improve multimodal access and bridge-to-city-street connections to meet accessibility guidelines. Repairs will be consistent with the historic character of the bridge and comply with environmental standards.
Preliminary work to prepare for construction begins this spring, including borings and other investigations, and curb modifications and the addition of a traffic signal at Charles Circle.
The $255 million Longfellow Bridge Rehabilitation is a signature project of the Patrick-Murray Administration's Accelerated Bridge Program to repair structurally-deficient bridges across the Commonwealth.
