Please join MassDOT at a public information meeting for an update on the major construction and demolition activities on the I-91 Viaduct.

MassDOT will also report on the Dynamic Merge System pilot program intended to enhance safety and improve traffic flow in the work zone on I-91 South. The presentation will conclude with a question and answer session.
MassDOT is undertaking the I-91 Viaduct Rehabilitation Project to replace the existing deck of the bridge, which is in poor condition. The project is the result of several years of planning and valuable input from a wide variety of stakeholders. It will continue to progress on an accelerated schedule to reduce traffic impacts and minimize construction duration. The project will reduce annual maintenance costs, increase safety and accessibility on this busy interstate, and ensure long-term serviceability.
