Longfellow Bridge 2 MassDOT has scheduled a Public Information meeting on the Longfellow Bridge Rehabilitation Project for:

Monday, April 11, 2011
6:30-8:30 PM
Shriners Hospitals for Children, Auditorium
51 Blossom Street, Boston

The purpose of this meeting is to provide a quarterly project update on the Longfellow Bridge Rehabilitation Project, a signature project of the Patrick-Murray Administration's historic Accelerated Bridge Program to repair deficient bridges. 

MassDOT has undertaken this major project to restore and rehabilitate the historic Longfellow Bridge, which crosses the Charles River between Cambridge and Boston, as one of the Charles River Basin Projects.  Following the presentation, MassDOT staff will lead a discussion to gather public comments and answer questions.

MassDOT worked with the Longfellow Bridge Rehabilitation Task Force in 2010 to ensure stakeholders were given an equal opportunity to comment on the approach and roadway cross-section being evaluated, with particular focus on serving transit, roadway, bicycle and pedestrian needs effectively and safely.  The Task Force concluded by submitting recommendations to MassDOT for consideration during the environmental review and design process.

MassDOT will submit an Environmental Assessment to the Federal Highway Administration this spring as the next step in the environmental review process. The Assessment will analyze project alternatives, including those recommended by the Task Force. Other key environmental reviews underway include Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966 and review of parkland impacts.

If you have questions or would like more information about the project, please contact Mike O’Dowd, 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.
