Public Information Meeting
Longfellow Bridge Rehabilitation Project
Tuesday, April 9, 2013
6:30 – 8:30 PM
Shriners Hospitals for Children, Auditorium
51 Blossom Street, Boston, MA
The purpose of this meeting is to present details on the Longfellow Bridge Rehabilitation design/build (D/B) project, including the traffic management plans and schedule, and introduce the project team. Following the presentation, Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) and D/B staff from the White-Skanska-Consigli J.V. (WSC) will lead a discussion to gather public comments and answer questions.
The rehabilitation will address the bridge's current structural deficiencies, upgrade its structural capacity and bring it up to modern code, including improving multimodal access and bridge-to-city-street connections to meet accessibility guidelines. The repairs and modifications will be consistent with the historic character of the bridge and comply with environmental standards.
WSC will begin preliminary activities to prepare for construction soon. The work includes borings and other investigations, and curb modifications and the addition of a traffic signal at Charles Circle.
