mass-ave-bridge-over-comm-ave-2017MassDOT has scheduled a public meeting about the Massachusetts Avenue Bridge Replacement Project in Boston as follows:

Monday, February 6, 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM, Harvard Club Saltonstall Room, 374 Commonwealth Avenue.

At this meeting, the project team will discuss plans, including traffic management and coordination with other projects in the area.

MassDOT will begin construction soon to replace the Massachusetts Avenue Bridge over Commonwealth Avenue (also known as the Tommy Leonard Bridge). The project will replace the bridge superstructure with prefabricated components and make improvements to the substructure. Sidewalks and barriers on Massachusetts Avenue will also be replaced. MassDOT is using accelerated bridge construction techniques to complete the project sooner and minimize impacts to the community.

The contractor anticipates beginning work the week of February 20 by closing the Commonwealth Avenue westbound bypass under Massachusetts Avenue. Vehicle and bicycle traffic will be detoured to the surface roadway. The Commonwealth Avenue eastbound bypass will be closed in Spring 2017 and an advisory will be distributed notifying the public prior to the traffic shift. A full closure of Massachusetts Avenue over Commonwealth Avenue to install the new bridge structure will occur over a weekend in mid to late July 2017 and will require detours. Advance notice will be provided before this work begins.

For more information about the project and to sign up for email advisories about traffic pattern changes, visit the project website.
