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.
