Western Ave Bridge ABP Project MassDOT will hold a public information meeting on the River Street Bridge & Western Avenue Bridge Rehabilitation project at the following date, time, and location:

Wednesday, February 3, 2010, 6:00-8:00PM
Honan-Allston Branch Library, 300 North Harvard Street, Allston

The meeting will provide an overview of the proposed rehabilitation of the historic Western Avenue Bridge, left, and River Street Bridge, introduce MassDOT’s design team, and answer questions.

The River Street Bridge/Western Avenue Bridge Rehabilitation Project is part of Governor Deval Patrick's historic 8-year, $3 billion Accelerated Bridge Program to repair hundreds of structurally-deficient bridges.

The project will repair deterioration of the bridges, upgrade structural capacity and improve local street connections and accessibility, while respecting and preserving to the extent possible the historic elements of the landmark bridges. The River Street Bridge, built in 1926, and the Western Avenue Bridge, built in 1924, connect Cambridge and Boston and are listed on the State and National Registers of Historic Places.

To learn more about the public meeting, contact Stephanie Boundy, 617-973-8049, Stephanie. Boundy@state.ma.us.  The Accelerated Bridge Program website is here.
