Casey Overpass Project

Project Overview

Design Process

On March 8, 2012 following substantial discussion and input from both the community and Working Advisory Group, MassDOT announced its decision to replace the existing Casey Overpass with a new, multimodal at-grade roadway. As of the early spring of 2014, the project has passed all of its significant design milestones, including receipt of a MEPA certificate and 25% design public hearing. On April 12, 2014, the project was advertised for construction.

At this time, the design for the project is complete. View a general plan of the corridor as the new Casey Arborway.

MassDOT and its design team have also concluded their work with the Design Advisory Group (DAG). A closing meeting was held on November 19, 2013 to provide this group with a final overview of the 100% design. Many members of the DAG also continued to provide input on the project over the winter of 2013 and into the early spring of 2014 as consulting parties to the MHC process. Both DOT and its design team want to express their thanks to the membership of the DAG for their hard work over the course of the design phase. Members of the DAG who began with the Working Advisory Group (WAG) in 2011 are especially thanked for their long commitment to the project.

Planning Process

In March 2011, the Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) initiated a study of alternatives to replace the existing Casey Overpass. The study worked to identify safe, accessible, multi-modal landscape, streetscape, and transportation options to accommodate all modes of transportation. The planning study considered alternatives that would replace the existing Casey Overpass with a new bridge or overhead structure, as well as alternatives that would eliminate the bridge and instead build a new at-grade roadway to accommodate the traffic currently carried by the Overpass.

As part of this process, MassDOT formed a Working Advisory Group, made of representatives of local neighborhoods and organizations that will be effected by the outcome of the Casey process. This group met regularly from March 2011 through November 2011. To review the materials developed by and for the Working Advisory Group members, please visit the project meetings page.
