Route 2 I-95 Project LogoMassDOT has scheduled a Public Information Meeting for the Route 2/I-95 Bridge Replacement Project as follows:

Wednesday, June 25, 6:30 PM, Jonas Clarke Middle School, 17 Stedman Road, Lexington

The meeting will provide details on the Route 2/I-95 Bridge Replacement design/build project, including traffic management plans and construction schedule. MassDOT staff and project contractor representatives will answer questions and gather public comments.

MassDOT is replacing the Route 2 east and westbound bridges over I-95. The project will address the bridges’ current structural deficiencies, upgrade capacity, improve safety, protect the environment and reduce annual maintenance costs. The project also includes new paving, guardrails and median upgrades on I-95 in the area.

The contractor will begin preliminary work in late June to prepare for construction, including clearing trees and shrubbery, digging test pits, surveying, and erosion control. Major construction is expected to begin in late July.

For questions or concerns, please contact Donny Dailey, 617-945-4272 or donny.dailey@state.ma.us.
