Route 79 Braga Bridge, Fall River

MassDOT has scheduled a public meeting for the Route79/BragaBridge Improvements Project as follows:

Tuesday, September 24, 7-9pm, Heritage State Park Auditorium, 200 Davol Street, Fall River

The project will enhance safety and access along the Route 79 corridor and the interchange with I-195 and bring the roadway and bridges up to current standards. The project will remove the elevated section of Route 79 and build a new surface roadway to connect with Davol Street and the waterfront; rebuild the nine “spaghetti ramps” connecting Route 79 and I-195; construct two new roadways to connect with the waterfront; repair, clean and paint the BragaBridge; and enhance pedestrian and bicycle accommodations.

The $197 million Fall River Route 79/I-195 Interchange Project is the final of five Mega Projects in the Patrick Administration’s historic Accelerated Bridge Program.

Please join MassDOT at the public meeting on September 24 to learn about the final design and construction phase of the project, which will begin this fall, and share your feedback. The project team will introduce the project and discuss the phases, schedule and traffic management plans. The presentation will conclude with a question and answer session.
