Fore River Bridge Replacement Project Public Information Meeting

The Massachusetts Department of Transportation Highway Devision invites you to a Public Information Meeting for the Fore River Bridge Replacement Project on

Monday, April 12, 2010

6:30 - 8:30 PM

Fore River Club House
16 Nevada Road
Quincy, MA 02169

The purpose of this meeting is to present the Fore River Bridge Replacement Project and the different bridge types being evaluated as part of the 25% design process. The evaluation is being performed as part of the federal NEPA environmental review process and in accordance with the scope outlined in the Secretary's Certificate for the Environmental Notifcation Form. The project team will also summarize comments received to date and how they are being incorporated into the environmental evaluation. Following the presentation, MassDOT staff will lead a discussion to answer questions and gather public comment on the alternatives. Comments received will be carefully considered as the alternatives evaluation moves forward.

The replacement of the Fore River Bridge, which carries Route 3A over the Fore River between Quincy and Weymouth, is being conducted under the Commonwealth's Accelerated Bridge Program (ABP). This is one of the most significant projects being undertaken by MassDOT under the ABP and when completed, will create a permanent, movable bridge to replace the current temporary span.
