MassDOT has released revised plans ahead of next Tuesday’s public meeting for the Cambridge Street bridge deck replacement project. A November 19th meeting drew more than 200 residents, many of whom voiced concern over the original plans. Several community organizations and more than 300 residents sent a letter to MassDOT with recommendations for the project. Senator Brownsberger, Senator DiDomenico, Representative Honan, Representative Moran and City Councilor Mark Ciommo sent a letter to MassDOT urging consideration of the community’s recommendations.
The redesign does not address all of the neighborhood’s concerns but there are improvements. The controversial median fence is still part of the design but a signalized crossing at Mansfield Street and physically separated cycle track have been added, as well as other improvements.
There will be a public meeting for this project next week:
