A Public Information meeting will be held by MassDOT to discuss the Allston I-90, Massachusetts Turnpike Interchange Improvement Project in the City of Boston, MA.

WHERE:          The Jackson Mann Community Center Auditorium
                        500 Cambridge Street
                        Allston, Massachusetts, 02134

WHEN:            Thursday, December 8, 2016 @ 6:30PM


PURPOSE:       The purpose of this meeting is to provide the public with the opportunity to become fully acquainted with progress made over the course of 2016 on concept development for the replacement of the I-90 Allston Interchange.  The meeting will also provide information regarding the next phase of project development.    All views and comments made at the meeting will be reviewed and considered to the maximum extent possible.

PROJECT:       The proposed project consists of an Interchange Improvement Project to address the structural and geometric deficiencies of the I-90 Allston Interchange between Cambridge Street and Commonwealth Avenue in the City of Boston. Context Sensitive Design Alternatives will be discussed and developed for further evaluation to ensure the reconstructed interchange and ramp configurations will continue to support the vehicular loading conditions and provide safe and reliable transportation access. The existing viaduct is severely deteriorated and alternatives under consideration for its replacement will provide MassDOT the opportunity to reconfigure the Allston Interchange. This project includes the provision to improve the alignment of I-90 between Cambridge Street and Commonwealth Avenue to fully take advantage of the benefits conferred by All Electronic Tolling (AET).
