Photo 4(5)MassDOT has scheduled two Public Information Meetings for the Longfellow Bridge Rehabilitation Project as follows:

Wednesday, January 20, 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM, Multicultural Arts Center, 41 Second Street, Cambridge

Thursday, January 21, 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM, Shriners Hospitals for Children Auditorium, 51 Blossom Street, Boston

The purpose of the meetings is to provide an update on recent progress and discuss Stage 3 of construction, anticipated to begin on February 1. Stage 3 construction includes shifting inbound and outbound bike travel to the upstream side of the bridge. Inbound vehicles and pedestrians will continue to use the downstream side of the bridge.

Following the presentation, staff from MassDOT and the design/build contractor, White-Skanska-Consigli JV, will be available to answer questions. The same presentation will be delivered at each meeting, so participants may choose the most convenient date or location. The meeting locations are accessible to people with disabilities.

The rehabilitation project is addressing the bridge’s current structural deficiencies, upgrading its structural capacity, and bringing it up to modern code with improved multimodal access and bridge-to-city-street connections to meet accessibility guidelines. The repairs and modifications will be consistent with the historic character of the bridge and comply with environmental standards. The end result will be a signature bridge ready for many more years of service.

For more information about the project or to sign up to receive email advisories, please visit the project website.  For construction related questions or issues, contact the project hotline, 617-519-9892, or email address, longfellowbridge@state.ma.us.
