Springfield I-91ViaductMassDOT will host a public hearing for the I-91 Viaduct Rehabilitation Project as follows:

Thursday, June 25, 6:30 PM, Basketball Hall of Fame Theater, 100 Hall of Fame Avenue, Springfield

The public hearing will update the City of Springfield community on preliminary construction work on the I-91 Viaduct that will begin in early July. The project team will provide an overview of the project, including planned lane closures and detours. The presentation will conclude with a question and answer session. Participants will have the opportunity to meet the Joint Venture Contractor, White-Schiavone.

MassDOT is undertaking the Interstate 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. The construction project has been designed to limit the number of traffic stages and keep construction duration to a minimum. The project involves replacing the concrete bridge deck and other structural repairs. In addition, MassDOT is proposing bridge drainage system enhancements that will improve water quality in the Connecticut River. Other improvements will include new lighting on the highway, the surface streets under the viaduct, the upper levels of the north and south garage, and the Columbus Avenue railroad underpass. The project will reduce annual maintenance costs, increase safety and accessibility on this busy interstate, and ensure long-term serviceability. The Federal Highway Administration is funding 80% of the rehabilitation, with MassDOT providing 20%.
