Morton Street Bridge A MassDOT Public Information Meeting to discuss the proposed Morton Street Bridge Replacement Project over the MBTA Railroad in the City of Boston is scheduled as follows:

Monday, December 13, 6:30pm, Mildred Avenue Community Center, 5 Mildred Avenue, Mattapan

The meeting will provide the public with a follow up to the previous public meeting, with issues to be discussed to include the auto, bus and pedestrian routes during the 10-day Rapid Construction closure. All views and comments made at this meeting will be carefully reviewed and considered.

The Morton Street Bridge project funded by Governor Patrick's Accelerated Bridge Program will replace the bridge carrying Morton Street over the MBTA Railroad. Rapid bridge construction techniques will allow two-way traffic to be maintained over the bridge during construction, except for a 10-day period when the bridge superstructure demolition and installation will take place. Access to local businesses and residences will be maintained during this 10-day period.The work will include complete replacement of the superstructure and construction of new abutments in front of the existing abutments and behind the existing piers, along with roadway approaches.

A secure right-of-way is necessary for this project. Acquisitions in fee and permanent or temporary easements may be required. MassDOT’s policy concerning land acquisitions will be discussed at the meeting.

 Plans will be on display one-half hour before the meeting begins, with an engineer in attendance to answer questions.  Learn more about the Accelerated Bridge Program.
