The project team will present an overview of three long-term alternatives for the I-91 viaduct, as well as short and mid-term improvement alternatives. These include above and below-ground options for sections of the highway, new bicycle and pedestrian amenities and connections, and improvements to highway interchanges. The public is encouraged to attend to learn more about the study and provide feedback.
