Thursday, March 27, 6:30 – 8:30 PM, The Fore River Club, 16 Nevada Street, Quincy
The purpose of this meeting is to provide an overview the project’s progress over the past several months and provide a preview of coming operations during the spring of 2014, including traffic impacts related to upcoming construction operations. The meeting will also provide residents and other stakeholders within the project area with an opportunity to ask questions of MassDOT’s design/build team for the project’s construction phase. Following the presentation, MassDOT staff will hold a question-and-answer session.
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 is scheduled for completion in 2016.
