McGrath Highway, BoulevardMassDOT has scheduled a Public Information Meeting for the McGrath Highway/McCarthy Boulevard Project in Somerville as follows:

Thursday, July 17, 6:30 – 8:30 PM, The Argenziano School Cafetorium, 290 Washington Street, Somerville

The purpose of this meeting is to introduce the Somerville community to the next phase of the McGrath Highway/McCarthy Boulevard Project. This new stage begins where the Grounding McGrath planning study ended and will undertake the design work and environmental review associated with the long-term conversion of the elevated McCarthy Overpass into an at-grade boulevard with “complete streets” style bicycle and pedestrian accommodations.

The meeting will also provide residents and other area stakeholders with an opportunity to learn about the status of the short-term improvements to the McGrath Highway corridor and to meet MassDOT’s project team for the current phase of work. Following the presentation, MassDOT staff will facilitate a discussion to hear comments and answer questions.

To be added to the project email list, please contact Donny Dailey, 857-368-8902 or donny.dailey@state.ma.us.
