Casey Overpass MapMassDOT has scheduled a Public Information Meeting for the Casey Arborway Project as follows:

Wednesday, January 21, 2015, 6:30 – 8:00 PM, Boston English High School Auditorium, 144 McBride Street

This project consists of removing the existing structurally deficient 1,650’ Casey Overpass and replacing it with a simplified at-grade reconstructed roadway network. A new fully accessible Orange Line access/egress headhouse will replace the existing substandard exit only headhouse. Bicycle and pedestrian accommodations will be enhanced throughout the project limits. The Route 39 bus will be relocated to the reconstructed upper busway at Forest Hills Station. The project will result in the reconnection of the Arborway and Emerald Necklace Park from the Arnold Arboretum to Franklin Park.

The meeting will introduce the MassDOT Construction Team including key members of the project’s selected contractor, Barletta Heavy Division. The meeting will also provide attendees with an overview of first phase of construction operations including temporary roadway configurations and traffic controls. The project’s long term phasing, environmental controls and public outreach strategy will also be addressed. This meeting marks the kick-off of the construction phase and all residents, abutters, local business owners, and interested commuters are strongly encouraged to attend. In case of inclement weather, a snow date for this meeting has been set for January 21st at the same time and location.

For more information, please contact John Romano, (857) 368-8905, john.romano@state.ma.us. The project website can be found at: http://www.massdot.state.ma.us/caseyarborway/Home.aspx
