A Public Information Meeting for the River Street Bridge/Western Avenue Bridge Project is set for:
Monday, July 18, 6:30 PM – 8:00 PM, Honan-Allston Branch Library, 300 North Harvard Street, Allston
The purpose of this meeting is to provide an overview of the proposed conceptual design for the rehabilitation of the historic River Street and Western Avenue Bridges, introduce MassDOT’s design team, answer questions and gather comments.
The River Street Bridge/Western Avenue Bridge Rehabilitation Project is being undertaken by MassDOT as part of the Commonwealth’s Accelerated Bridge Program. The project will repair deteriorating elements of the bridges, upgrade structural capacity and improve local street connections and accessibility. The work will respect the documented historic status of these landmark structures and preserve as many of the original elements as possible. The River Street Bridge, above, was constructed in 1926 and the Western Avenue Bridge was constructed in 1924. Both bridges are listed on the State and National Registers of Historic Places and serve as primary connections between Cambridge and Boston.
If you have questions or would like more information about the project, please contact Robert Antico, MassDOT Highway Division Project Manager, Robert.Antico@state.ma.us. To be added to the project email or US Mail distribution lists, please contact Stephanie Boundy, at 617-973-8049 or Stephanie.Boundy@state.ma.us.
