Worcester, Belmont Street Bridge, June 2013

MassDOT is inviting the public to attend an informational meeting on the design of the Route 9 Belmont Street Bridge over I-290 in Worcester.  The meeting will be held as follows:

Thursday, June 13, 7 p.m., UMass Memorial Hospital Campus, Amphitheater, Building North 1, 119 Belmont Street, Worcester.

This purpose of the meeting is to update the public on the design for the reconstruction of the Belmont Street Bridge over I-290.  The current project cost estimate is $9.7 million with construction expected to begin in spring 2014.  The proposed bridge will be the same length but 15 feet wider than the existing bridge.  The project also includes construction of a temporary pedestrian bridge to provide for safe pedestrian access over I-290.

MassDOT project staff will be available to provide an overview of the proposal and answer questions.
