The purpose of this hearing is to acquaint the public with the proposed rehabilitation of the Chelsea Viaduct, consisting of two bridges which carry Route 1 north and southbound over Chelsea between County Road and the Tobin Bridge. All views and comments made at the hearing will be reviewed and considered to the maximum extent possible.
The Chelsea Viaduct is structurally deficient and in need of repair and rehabilitation. The viaduct, first constructed in 1956-’57, carries 63,000 vehicles daily (including MBTA Route 111) on Route 1 through the Chelsea Curves to the Tobin Bridge, providing a crucial transportation link between Chelsea, the north shore, and Boston.
