Event Type:   Public Information Meeting Event: Public Information Meeting for the Longfellow Bridge Rehabilitation Project


The purpose of this meeting is to provide a project update and present details on the Longfellow Bridge Rehabilitation Project.  Following the presentation, Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) staff will lead a discussion to gather public comments and answer questions.


MassDOT has been working with the Longfellow Bridge Rehabilitation Task Force since June 2010 to ensure stakeholders are given an equal opportunity to comment on the final approach and roadway cross-section of the bridge, with particular focus on serving transit, roadway, bicycle and pedestrian needs effectively and safely.  Upon completion of the series of Task Force meetings in October 2010, MassDOT will amend the Environmental Assessment and file with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) in November 2010.


MassDOT has undertaken this major project to restore and rehabilitate the historic Longfellow Bridge across the Charles River. MassDOT will present alternatives that provide safe and convenient access to the transit, pedestrian, motorist and bicycle users of the facility while being consistent with AASHTO and Massachusetts Project Development/Design Guide guidelines.
