Charles River Basin Projects 2 MassDOT and the Department of Conservation and Recreation have scheduled three Public Information Meetings to discuss the Charles River Basin Connectivity Study. 

The meetings will provide an overview of the Charles River Basin Connectivity Study and gather public comment.

The meetings are as follows:

 

Tuesday, October 11, 6:30 to 8 PM, Shriners Hospitals for Children, 51 Blossom Street, Boston
Thursday, October 13, 6:30 to 8 PM, Community Rowing Boathouse, 20 Nonantum Road, Brighton
Tuesday, October 18, 2011, 6:30 to 8 PM, Morse School Auditorium, 40 Granite Street, Cambridge

MassDOT’s design consultant will present the existing conditions analysis completed to date, and describe in detail how the study will identify the various gaps that preclude a seamless connection across the ten Charles River Basin bridges, their adjacent intersections and along the path system throughout the Charles River Reservation. Following the presentation, MassDOT and DCR staff will lead a discussion to answer questions and gather public comments.

The Charles River Basin Bridges are being reconstructed as part of the Patrick-Murray Administration's historic Accelerated Bridge Program to repair Commonwealth bridges.
