Photo 4(7)MassDOT has scheduled two Public Information Meetings for the Longfellow Bridge Rehabilitation Project as follows:

Tuesday, May 24, 6:00-8:00pm, Multicultural Arts Center, 41 Second Street, Cambridge
Wednesday, May 25, 6:00-8:00pm,  Shriners Hospitals for Children, Auditorium, 51 Blossom Street, Boston

The purpose of the meetings is to provide an update on recent progress and discuss Stage 4 of construction, anticipated to begin in late July 2016.

In Stage 4, inbound vehicles and the MBTA Red Line tracks will be shifted to the upstream side of the bridge to allow the contractor to work on the downstream side. All bicycle traffic, both inbound and outbound, will continue to use the upstream sidewalk, and pedestrians will continue to use the downstream side of the bridge. Following the presentation, staff from MassDOT and the design/build contractor, White-Skanska-Consigli JV, will be available to answer questions.

The same presentation will be delivered at each meeting, so participants may choose the most convenient date or location. The meeting locations are accessible to people with disabilities.

The rehabilitation project is addressing the bridge’s current structural deficiencies, upgrading its structural capacity, and bringing it up to modern code with improved multimodal access and bridge-to-city-street connections to meet accessibility guidelines. The repairs and modifications will be consistent with the historic character of the bridge and comply with environmental standards. The end result will be a signature bridge ready for many more years of service.
