i-91-viaduct-study-jpgThe I-91 Viaduct Study Team is pleased to announce that the Final Report for the I-91 Viaduct Study is now available on the study website.

MassDOT initiated this conceptual planning study in Fall 2014 to identify existing issues and evaluate alternatives for I-91 from US-20/Plainfield Street to the Connecticut State line. The Final Report details the study process, alternatives analysis and final recommendations for the I-91 corridor. The Report indicates that MassDOT will pursue a future rehabilitation of the Viaduct for a long-term project along with several short and mid-term associated projects, including:

  • Improvements to the Longmeadow curve area
  • Relocation of the ramp from I-291 Southbound to I-91 Southbound
  • Route 20 improvements in Springfield
  • Short-term alternatives around the viaduct

MassDOT will continue to work with local cities and towns and the Pioneer Valley Planning Commission to initiate the short and mid-term project development process. The short and mid-term projects and conceptual cost estimates are described in detail in the Final Report.

Comments received on the Draft Final Report and summaries of the public and Working Group meetings can be found in the Report’s Appendix.

MassDOT and the Study Team would like to extend a special thanks to the Working Group members for their continued collaboration and for providing insight and feedback throughout the study. The Working Group, comprised of state and local stakeholders, met 11 times between November 2014 and July 2018. MassDOT also thanks the members of the public who participated in the three public meetings that were held during the study and submitted comments on the Draft Final Report. Materials from the September 12 public meeting can be found on the study website.
