MassDOT will host a Design Public Information Meeting for Springfield area residents and commuters tonight, February 25, 2014, at 6:30 PM to outline plans for the Interstate 91 Viaduct Rehabilitation Project. MassDOT is completing a design to replace the existing bridge deck, which is in poor condition.

The meeting will take place tonight:
