Fall River: Route 79/I-195/Braga Bridge Public Hearing

Wednesday, January 9th - 6:30p
@ DCR Heritage State Park Visitor’s Center Auditorium, 200 Davol Street, Fall River [map]

Hosted by MassDOT

The proposed Route 79/I-195 Interchange Project funded by the Patrick-Murray Administration's Accelerated Bridge Program consists of removing the two-level Route 79 viaduct and building an at-grade Route 79 that will use parts of existing streets (Broadway, Davol/Viaduct Street, and Davol Street).

The Braga Bridge Phase II Project includes structural repairs and cleaning and painting of structural steel on the Braga Bridge carrying I-195 over the Taunton River.

MassDOT has combined the two projects to better manage traffic impacts, since the Phase II Braga Bridge work will be underway when the Route 79/I-195 Interchange Improvements Project begins. For more information, please visit the Route 79/I-195 Interchange Improvement Project website.
