MassDOT has scheduled a Design Informational Meeting for the proposed Route 28 (McGrath Highway) over Gilman Street Bridge Replacement Project as follows:

Thursday, June 6, 6:30pm, Michael E. Capuano Early Childhood Center, 150 Glen Street, Somerville

The meeting will provide the public with the opportunity to learn more and offer comments about the proposed project

The proposed project will replace the existing three span bridge carrying McGrath Highway over Gilman Street with a single span bridge. The proposed bridge will have two sidewalks and a section of Gilman Street will be reconstructed as part of this project.

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 this hearing.

Plans will be on display one-half hour before the meeting begins, with an engineer in attendance to answer questions regarding this project.  A project handout will be made available on the MassDOT website listed below.

Questions may be sent to Tracy Osimboni, Project Manager, 857-368-9291, Stephanie Boundy, 857-368-8904, or email: dot.feedback.highway@state.ma.us
