South Coast RailMassDOT will host Design Public Hearings in Fall River and New Bedford on the 25% design of four bridge replacements along the future South Coast Rail route. The bridge replacements will provide fast and tangible benefits to help expanding freight service and will also be required for future passenger rail.

The bridges will be completely removed and replaced. They include Golf Club Road, President Avenue and Brownell Street bridges in Fall River and Wamsutta bridge in New Bedford.

The hearings are scheduled for:

Wednesday, April 16, 6:30 – 8:30 PM, Heritage State Park, Visitor Center Auditorium, 200 Davol Street, Fall River

Thursday, April 17, 6:30 – 8:30 PM, Brooklawn Park Community Center, 1997 Acushnet Avenue, New Bedford

Design plans will be available to view at 6 PM. Comments can also be sent to the Chief Engineer, and they must be postmarked within 10 business days of the Public Hearing.  Letters can be submitted at the hearing or mailed as follows:

Patricia A. Leavenworth, P.E., Chief Engineer, MassDOT – Highway Division, 10 Park Plaza, Boston, MA 02116, ATTN: Bridge Project Management, Project File No. 607730
