Fore River Bridge Banner 2012MassDOT will hold a public information meeting to update the Fore River Bridge Replacement Project as follows:

Thursday, November 21, 6:30 – 8:30 PM, Abigail Adams Middle School Auditorium, 89 Middle St, Weymouth

The purpose of this meeting is to provide an overview of the project’s progress over the past several months and provide a preview of coming operations during the winter of 2013 regarding traffic impacts related to upcoming construction operations. The meeting will also provide residents and other stakeholders within the project area with an opportunity to meet MassDOT’s design/build team for the construction phase of the project.

Following the presentation, MassDOT staff will lead a discussion to answer questions. The Fore River Bridge Replacement is part of the Commonwealth’s historic $3 billion Accelerated Bridge Program to repair or replace structurally deficient bridges across Massachusetts. The Fore River Bridge project includes the complete replacement and eventual removal of the existing temporary span. The project now underway is scheduled for completion in 2016.

To be added to the project email list, please contact Donny Dailey, 857-368-8902 or donny.dailey@state.ma.us. For more
