Longfellow Bridge 2 A Public Information Meeting for the Longfellow Bridge Rehabilitation Project is set for:

Wednesday, October 6, 6:30-8:30 PM, Shriners Hospitals for Children, Auditorium, 51 Blossom Street, Boston

MassDOT staff will provide a project update and answer questions. 

MassDOT has been working with the Longfellow Bridge Rehabilitation Task Force since June 2010 to ensure stakeholders are given an equal opportunity to comment on the final approach and roadway cross-section of the bridge, with particular focus on serving transit, roadway, bicycle and pedestrian needs effectively and safely. Upon completion of the series of Task Force meetings in October 2010, MassDOT will amend the Environmental Assessment and file with the Federal Highway Administration in November 2010.

The Longfellow Bridge Rehabilitation is a signature project funded by Governor Patrick's eight-year, $3 billion Accelerated Bridge Program to repair deficient and obsolete bridges across the Commonwealth.

The Longfellow project is the largest of several investments totaling more than $300 million in rebuilding the bridges along the Charles River Basin, including the BU Bridge, Craigie Drawbridge, and the Western Avenue, River Street, and Anderson Memorial Bridges.

If you have questions or would like more information about the project, please contact Mike O’Dowd, MassDOT Project Manager, at 617-973-7475. To be added to the project distribution list, please contact Stephanie Boundy at 617-973-8049 or stephanie.boundy@state.ma.us.
