Springfield I-91ViaductMassDOT will hold a Public Information Meeting for the I-91 Viaduct Rehabilitation Project as follows:

Thursday, September 24, 6:30pm, Basketball Hall of Fame, 1000 Hall of Fame Avenue, Springfield

The meeting will provide an update on major construction that will begin during this upcoming winter season of 2015-2016. MassDOT and the project Joint Venture, White-Schiavone, will provide an overview of the anticipated activities, including closures of the inner travel lanes of I-91 north and southbound along the median and several on- and off-ramps between I-91 and downtown Springfield. The project team will review traffic mitigation strategies and detour routes and conclude with a question and answer session.

MassDOT is undertaking the Interstate 91 Viaduct Rehabilitation Project to replace the existing deck of the bridge, which is in poor condition. The project is the result of several years of planning and valuable input from a wide variety of stakeholders. It will progress on an accelerated schedule to reduce traffic impacts and minimize construction duration. The project will reduce annual maintenance costs, increase safety and accessibility on this busy interstate, and ensure long-term service.

Please visit the project website to sign up for email alerts and learn more about this important project. For questions or concerns, please email the project team: I91viaduct@state.ma.us or call 413-562-0569.
